Egg Dancing

With only a schizophrenic mother and a militantly hostile sister for backup, Hazel Sugden, food-splattered mum and queen of low self-esteem, is palpably unfit to save the future of mankind as we know it. But, when embryology, psychiatry and religion clash over the miracle designer drug Genetic Choice, the dysfunctional trio are propelled into action with explosively comic results.
