It’s 1964 and Mary Adams has been brought to St. Saviours mother and baby home by her distressed mother. She is 19 years old, unmarried, and pregnant. Along with the tough-talking Queenie, naive Dolores, and heavily pregnant Norma, the girls work in the laundry and keep each other going. Thanks to Mary’s record player, they bond over a love of 1960 girl groups, which entertain, console and inspire the girls as they come to terms with their advancing pregnancies. When Mary sees the trauma Norma goes through after she is forced to give up her baby for adoption, she begins a desperate fight to keep her child. However, before she can make her escape, nature takes its course and Mary is brought face to face with her newborn daughter sooner than she expected.
