Overview

Friendship and tea ease worries, wine makes merry the heart, and love creates fools out of us all.

Tess has been living in Los Angeles for the past decade with her best friend, Zara, and Zara's daughter, Zénnie. Zara - a neurosurgeon who's divorced - decides to move back to Canada out of concern that Zénnie might conform to L.A. culture as she grows older. She accepts a position in Calgary, Alberta, and Tess decides to move with them.

So begins a brand-new life for the three women, but little do they know they are in for much more than outdoor adventures in one of the most beautiful places on the planet.

On a whim, Tess entices Zara to rent an enormous house with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains and big open spaces around. The snag: they will need subtenants to afford the rent. Zara is apprehensive about living with strangers, but the idea grows on her, and they decide to do it!

When five gorgeous men-originally from Namibia-and a kooky English woman move into the house and their lives, unexpectedly deep friendships form and the big house bustles with opinionated conversations and hilarious antidotes to inner struggles and, sometimes, surprising personal revelations.

Tess is a loveable yet slightly neurotic artist who analyzes and dissects everything. Her biggest fear is taking a chance on love again after a devastating heartbreak many years ago.

Despite this, and against good common sense, Tess falls in love with a younger man but is faced with the reality that he has no intention of getting serious, yet she inexplicably hangs on to the hope he might change his mind.

When love enters through another door, she is initially too caught up in her struggle with herself to notice. But her world, full of doubt and preconceived ideas, is about to topple, and she has no clue how to handle it.

Her girlfriends fear she will miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime. They try - not always patiently - to talk some sense into her. And they hope, for her sake, her heart will accept him.

Tess Has a Broken Heart, and Other Comedies Full of Errors, is a story about people who enter our lives as strangers and become like family; the constant struggles - inward and expressed - women face in a world obsessed with youth and beauty, and how women's friendships help them navigate through these changing ocean tides. It is also about good, beautiful inside-out men who see the true qualities in the women who share their lives and stand ready to defend and support them.
