The heartwarming and inspiring tale of five brave women in a munitions factory during WWII. Ernest Bevin's 1941 announcement that all woman between 18 and 30 must register for war work has made Emily furious - she's just landed her dream job and the last thing she wants is to have to give it up for a bomb factory in Lancashire. The glamorous Lillian and studious Alice are not too happy either. But for downtrodden Elsie and determined Agnes, the promise of a new challenge brings renewed hope. Despite their differing outlooks, the five women forge lifelong friendships as they share experiences of love, loss, thwarted dreams and new opportunities, through the darkest of times
