The year is 1971, decimalization has been introduced, Middle of the Road charting with Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep. Polly, a young struggling assistant on the Carterton Gazette, gets her first assignment. While trapped in a public house with local shoppers and market stallholders, she discovers a lot about the people and learns about their memories. From faggot making, joining the RAF, Saturday night dances, Jiving, Quickstep and seeing the all female Ivey Benson band in 1954, Polly comes away with a story that interests a well known Women's magazine.
