How many hats do you own?
Would you rather be too hot or too cold?
Are your first impressions of someone usually accurate?

Sam and Alex work in the same call centre. Sometimes they sit next to each other. They really love their job but there’s something missing. You might need to help them figure out what that is.

Is Now A Good Time? is a charming, funny and unexpected story, told in a truly original way.
