In 1940s Hampshire the war is settling into its stride bringing dark days for many. Eighteen-year-old Connie Baxter works as an usherette at the Criterion Picture House in Gosport. Here she meets Queenie, who sells ice creams and dreams of being in the spotlight. As the war rages on, the women get to know each other and become firm friends, uniting against the wandering hands of the Criterion's creepy manager. But when Connie falls for the charming Tommo Smith, her friendships are tested.
