An old-age-pensioner looks back to her childhood in a working class area. She is not bitter about the much better life young people have today, but she describes the contrast, which is very enlightening. Although made a few years ago, it is useful because it gives historical perspective.

Made in 1974 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless.
