Lily Page, 50 years of age, has lived her entire life in the family home in North London’s Islington, brought up by her classicist father and indomitable aunt following her mother’s early death with an implied sense of obligation. But it is 1983 and change is in the air. When her elderly father dies, Lily is conflicted by a sense of freedom that she feel ill-equipped to embrace after a lifetime of compliance and welcomes chance meetings with a mercurial young woman, Stella Fox, and a middle-aged actor, Hugh Murray to fill the void she fears. Their friendships, however, prove to have unexpected consequences for Lily.
