Belfast, 1939, and Martha's daughters are beginning to make their way in the world. Irene, the eldest, is on the lookout for a new job and romance. Pat is sensitive and thoughtful, and dreams of life beyond the Ulster Linen Works. Peggy, hot-headed and glamorous, loves her job in Mr Goldstein's music shop on Royal Avenue. Sheila, the youngest, wants to stay on at school, but her family desperately needs another wage. Although they lead very different lives, they share a passion for singing and join a troupe of entertainers, making Martha fear for their safety as the bombs begin to fall.
