This is a poignant, warm and often funny story of an ordinary woman, who after being pushed around by others for most of her life finally decides to stand up for herself. Starring Pauline Collins (with echoes of Shirley Valentine) as Thelma, who has endured 30 years of a meaningless marriage. When her husband dies, she is pushed into a care home, where she acquires a band of strange new friends who look to her for help and assistance and these new responsibilities give her life a new purpose and meaning. Also starring John Alderton as the odious manager of the Rest Home.
