The back-rooms of Manchester-based personal injury law firm Fox Cranford are gathering places for school-leavers, no-hopers and general misfits - and if they monkey around till lunch, its guerrilla warfare in the office till dinner.

Straight out of school, and into a job they don't want, Darrel, Kenny, Asif, Shelley and Tania are going nowhere fast. Looked down on by the solicitors they work for, they face constant criticism by their power hungry supervisor Gloria Stevens.

Bored senseless for eight hours a day, the post room gang fill their time fighting, flirting, winding each other up and generally causing mayhem whilst dodging disciplinary action and the occasional irate client. Their adventures also include an office sleepover, ghosts, tramps and a serious case of fatal attraction!

Mike Cranford is the firm's owner. As far as Gloria is concerned, he is the glamour and power of the law courts personified. As Gloria strives to be recognised and rewarded for her role in the company she is continually let down by her team of teenage wasters... and through her own lack of professionalism. Meanwhile, hotshot solicitor Charlie is Tania's misguided romantic interest and lovelorn Kenny's nemesis.
