The first tells how 1940s evacuee Tony and his friend Alice befriend a fascinating old lady in the Lake District who introduces them to the countryside and draws Alice's portrait. In the second, teenage Mallie takes a part-time job in a pet shop, buys her artist mother a dusty old picture as a birthday present, and tries her best to engineer a romance between her new boss and her mother, aided by her feisty friend Jamila. Everything goes wrong ... but the picture has a power of its own and pulls both stories together - in front of TV cameras - in a jaw-dropping climax."@en ;
