Sam's money-making plan starts to bear fruit, but it comes at a great cost. Frustrated by her mum's constant absence and the new lodger living in her bedroom, Alice seeks refuge at her dad's house. Later, Sam's listening device is found in the office, and an investigation is launched which cuts off their source of information. Desperate to make amends with Jess and bring in some money, Sam follows an inside lead and enlists the help of a fellow cleaner, Mina, to execute a risky scam in another office.
The characterful drama focuses on an ordinary working class woman, Sam, who is caught between two worlds - the everyday life of a devoted and loving Mum and the darker, dangerous world of insider trading. Sassy office cleaner Sam is one of an invisible army of cleaners on a zero hours contract who mop, sweep and vacuum in the early hours. Struggling with an on-line gambling addiction, Sam realises she has access to lucrative Stock Market information which if used correctly could be the answer to all her prayers. Set in the contrasting worlds of shiny Canary Wharf and the realities of modern suburbia, Cleaning Up, explores how far Sam will go to survive, claw back some self-respect and get her life back on track.
