In this slice-of-life film shot in 1981 for British television, a wide-ranging group of Royal Navy men --
very young men -- try to have one last reprieve on land before they take off for NATO duty. Each
sailor is confronted with a unique challenge: Mark (David John) tries to help out a victim of a severe
beating, Malcolm (Martin Barrass) is enjoying more than a nip or two from the bottle as he barrels
toward the embarkation point on a passenger train, and a few other recruits have their love lives high
on a list of priorities. Steve (John Altman) has some personal adventures as he tries to advance a
romantic liaison, and Douglas (Timothy Spall) worries over leaving his pregnant wife behind, knowing
she will give birth while he is gone. At times a bit slow, this drama won first prize at the 1983
Taormina Film Festival.

Plot Synopsis from Eleanor Mannikka, AllMovie.com

John P. Grout collapses under the strain of making enough money to keep his family happy. Only his
favorite daughter, Mab, remains unimpressed by possessions and social status, and she falls in love
with Seth Smith, a clerk in his department store. While Grout hovers near death the family changes
its attitude. He recovers to save himself from financial ruin, the family reduces its demands on him,
and Seth becomes a successful businessman.
