In impoverished Birmingham in the 1930s, Emma Brown's life is turned upside down when her mother, Cynthia, has another baby. Cynthia doesn't seem able to cope, and soon it seems that the only thing to do is for her to go and stay with her tyrannical older sister across the city. Life gets even tougher for Emma with her mother away, and she decides it's time to bring her mother home. But the woman she discovers is very different to the mother she remembers.
