When Ziva happens upon an invitation to a Tea Party for Sad People, she is drawn into a surreal Purgatory where sadness is sought for all the wrong reasons. Tears are a source of pride, no matter how minor the trigger, and status is about how sad your story is.


The mysterious Joy fetishises sorrow, and eschews all solids. The amiable Lavender isn’t particularly sad that’s why she carries an onion in her hankie. Jill is the alpha of the pack, policing the etiquette of sadness.


How will the ladies react to Ziva’s sob story?
