Jo hasn’t had it easy, growing up with a volatile, alcoholic mother, moving from one bed-sit to another. Until Jo meets Jimmie, a black sailor, who she spends the night with while her mum is gallivanting with a younger man. Jo finds out she is pregnant, and with her mother abandoning her, seeks solace with a homosexual friend, Geoffrey, who becomes a leading father figure to Jo. But when Jo’s mother reappears, the life that she has so carefully put together for herself starts to fall away again.
