Early 1960s realist drama following a day in the lives of two London flatmates. Sylvia Syms and June Ritchie star as Billa and Ginnie, two singletons sharing a London flat who both work as night club hostesses in the same Soho club. Tensions arise when Ginnie becomes romantically entangled with rich married businessman Bob Shelbourne (Edward Judd), causing Billa to become jealous of their relationship. Meanwhile, Billa's schoolteacher father (William Hartnell) pays her a visit, and is shocked by her way of life. Let down by men and jaded by life's harsh lessons, the two women eventually come to realise that they have no one to depend on but each other.
