James and Anna like to play games. From their first dates, to the engagement rings, to favourite books, they like to hide things and challenge the other to find them. When James turns up with a pair of leopard print handcuffs, and challenge Anna to find the key before he gets back in 5 minutes with the wine, she accepts, thinking an easy win. Just as he leaves, the in laws call, they’re coming to say hi… in 5 mins. Now she has to escape. But her search comes up fruitless, even with a clue from James to look in a box somewhere in the house. She even tries the letterbox outside, encountering some surprising neighbours. As the in laws draw closer, and James on his way back, she has to find the key before it’s too late… she never guessed where it might be.
