   schema:description "Ally is a good working class girl who has moved to a more upmarket neighbourhood, Ally is obsessed with her beautiful, self-assured neighbour and friend, Juno. Juno seems to have it all. The handsome husband, the beautiful home, and a cultural life unlike any Ally has ever known. When Juno makes the rash decision to appear on 'Queen Mum', a programme not unlike Wife Swap, Ally is drawn into the glamour of it all, and even gets a spot on television when the replacement mum, Kim, invites her around, first for lunch and then, in a brilliant scene of manipulation and sheer cold-bloodedness, to save a dying bird. It's only when the programme airs that we realise that things in Juno's household are not as Ally believes, and that she and Juno are more alike than she ever imagined."@en ;
