Lilly Valances childhood was completely over shadowed by the events of World War 1. Going into her adult hood, she is determined to not be affected by Post war Britain. Britain has changed; it’s people, its ways, everything about the country is different and Lilly is ready to embrace that as she takes centre stage in the pursuit of stardom and fame.
Captain Stephen Winters, haunted by the war and desperately clinging onto a Britain that no longer exists is desperate for an escape from the nightmares that plague him every time he closes his eyes. Lilly captivates him, her purity, her innocence and how totally untouched by the War she is, he knows she can save him.
