Spring, 1944. Working as a supervisor on a production line for planes, Hildy believes she is doing her part to help with the war effort. But troubles at home, with her dependent and overly-protective mother, make it harder for her to find happiness as she hides her relationship with an American GI. Meanwhile, Cora has lost both her parents in the Blitz and is still reeling from the devastating loss. Along with her friend, Belle, the two young women turn to the dark streets of Southampton to work on the game, wishing to raise enough money for a new beginning elsewhere and put their pasts behind them. For all three women, the war provides challenges and hardships that they will only emerge from by maintaining courage, strength and, above all, hope.
