A touching portrayal of a mother and daughter bound by love and danger
When Suzy Lunt's widowed mother Josie marries Luke Palmer, it's mainly to keep a roof over their heads. But soon Josie realises she's made a mistake, and she and Suzy flee Liverpool and a man they now fear. But will they be safe from the past in Birkenhead? Nostalgic scenes of Liverpool life enhance this touching portrayal of a mother and daughter bound by love and danger.
