An ex-agoraphobic herself, Gwenda decides that the perfect way to help them overcome their fears is to get them involved in staging a bazaar and rummage sale at their local church hall. With the help of trainee social worker Fliss, they tackle the first major obstacle - getting there - only to be faced later on with the horrifying prospect of having to make their way back home
