Gosport, Hampshire, 1943. Ruby has been living and working at the Point of No Return pub since her parents were killed by a bomb. She loves the bustle of the pub; it helps take her mind off worrying about her fiance, Joe, away fighting in France. Singer Sylvie is out for all she can get, including Joe, but party girl Marge is a great friend to Ruby and makes sure they have fun, though she's not as fond of her other role as a mother to two young children. The three face many obstacles to fulfilling their dreams, but the bonds of friendship keep them going through the darkest of times...
