    Friends Agnes and Bee are about to finish secretarial exams and begin their adult lives. It’s the start of the 1970s and though their paths are mapped out, they can’t help feeling that something is missing. Leaving their Oxford homes they
    venture to London in search of more.

    For Agnes’s mother, Florence, life feels narrower day by day. As her children grow up and fly the nest she is left with a husband who isn’t interested in her and a weekly routine she has had for as long she can remember. Striking out on her own across Europe, she will soon discover more about herself than she ever thought possible. Will she want to come home?

    As the world changes around them, two women from different generations strive to matter and be validated on their own terms. Both will realise that there has never been a better time to be alive.
