Lester Benson (Kenneth Cope) manages one of the biggest rock bands in 1960s Britain, the Small Faces (as themselves). He happens to be an ex-con who wants to return to the crime scene. He summons the help of Major Fairclough (William Lucas) who safe-cracks diamonds to smuggle into the Netherlands via the Big L's ship. It seems a perfect crime as no-one served as a witness, except for an intellectually-challenged bus conductress called Mrs. Edgecomb (Patsy Rowlands) who saw Major Fairclough ("a military-looking man")

A troubled British widow searches for a meaning to her life. 63-year-old Penelope Keeling, daughter of an artist, lives alone and fairly comfortably in England's Cotswold countryside. But at the outset of the film, Penelope suffers a heart attack. That brush with death moves her to reflect on her often embattled relationships with her three adult children, whose own quests for happiness have not been especially fulfilling. Confused and insecure, Penelope embarks on an odyssey of self-discovery, frequently reflecting back on the memorable years that shaped her character during World War II
