When two high-flying women find love, there's a long way to fall...
Francesca Jones is a first-time candidate for parliament, contesting a seat held by an arch conservative. She's the wife of a former All-Black and the mother of a dope-smoking teenager.
Kate Lawrence is a high-profile TV journalist, single and sexy, with a private past. She's angling for a top new current affairs job, with an ambitious young man as her rival.
Set in the run-up to the 2008 elections in New Zealand, "Kate & Mrs Jones" by Lorae Parry is a comedy, a love-story, and a reflection on the problems women face on the path to power.
