Abstract:

Spring, 1944. Working on an aeroplane production line, Hildy believes she is doing her part for the war effort. But troubles at home with her overly-protective mother, make it harder for her to find happiness. Meanwhile, Cora is still reeling from the devastating loss of both her parents in the Blitz. Faced with homelessness and poverty, Cora and her friend, Belle, turn to the dark streets of Southampton to work on the game. For all three women, the war creates hardships from which they will only emerge by maintaining strength and, above all, the hope that they can achieve their dreams.
