Dolly Taylor and Penny Watts have been friends all their lives. Growing up in Rotherhithe, they now work in a factory making shell cases to be sent to the front line. As the Second World War rages on, Dolly dreams of escaping to far-off lands - in particular America. Excitement at home, however comes in the form of the American GIs, who break the monotony of factory life and nightly air-raids with music and dancing. Despite her loyalty to Tony, who is fighting overseas, Dolly feels increasingly attracted to the sophisticated and handsome Joe. And then he proposes.
