Dot despairs at the abandonment of the sisterhood - surely pole dancing can never be empowering? Margot is resentful that her youthful ambitions have been thwarted by family - her ex-husband is on a pilgrimage to try and walk away his grief, their daughters are coping with unemployment and secret shopping binges, meanwhile Margot's sister Phyllida discovers that her husband dying is the least of the shocks awaiting her.
Liz Byrski takes her fallible characters on the journey we are all on - what does it mean to grow older? And is there ever a stage in life when we can just be ourselves and not feel pressured to stay young?
