Synopsis

Set in 1930s London, this made-for-TV production, based on the novel by Noel Streatfield, tells the tale of Pauline (Emma Watson), Petrova (Yasmin Paige) and Posy Fossil (Lucy Boynton), who are adopted by an eccentric explorer, Gum (Richard Griffiths), and raised as sisters by his selfless niece (Emilia Fox) and her nurse (Victoria Wood). Each of the girls has a dream to fulfil; Pauline longs to be an actress, Petrova yearns to be an aviator, and Posy seems born to be a ballerina. But when Gum disappears and the money runs out, the feisty and devoted Fossils find they must fight to survive.
