Manchester girl, Rosie Molloy is addicted to everything - smoking, alcohol, Terry’s Chocolate Oranges, Xanax, Adderall, caffeine... the list goes on. After an embarrassing incident at her brother Joey’s wedding Rosie wakes up in hospital and decides to change her life by ‘Giving Up Everything’. But as Rosie juggles her father Conall’s illness, with a dawning realisation that her addictions are destroying her friendships, family and work life, she also starts to question that by giving up everything - is she also giving up the very thing that makes her Rosie?
