About the show
Tomato Soup, a Jenga game, a passionate love story that was born in a bohemian style bedroom on top of a London pub. How could it all go wrong? Apparently because of an accidental murder in a supermarket. Or was it on a train platform? When two cops, Tom and Jerry, break into James and Moyna’s flat on an early morning, their life will be forever changed. But when will the truth be revealed? Maybe when Bryan from deliveroo recognizes a High School friend, or on Mrs McCartney’s birthday?
