Neighbours Edie Kelsey and Lil Horton have been friends for over 20 years the wives of fishermen in Grimsby. It was no surprise that Edie's son Frank and Lil's daughter Irene would fall in love and marry at a young age. But the declaration of war in 1939 changed everything. Frank went off to fight and Irene and baby Tommy along with Edie's youngest son are sent to the countryside. With Edie's husband Archie fishing the dangerous North Sea and daughter Beth in London doing “important war work” Edie's family is torn apart. Friendship sustains Edie and Lil but tragedy follows. But it is Irene's return during the VE day celebrations that sends shock waves through the families.
