Sometimes, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do….
It’s the sixties, but London isn’t swinging for our girl Edith, whose life seems to offer so little hope. Trapped in a home full of anger and hate, with a father determined to destroy her, she is desperate to escape. So, when her gay cousin, Ronnie, comes to her rescue she seizes the opportunity and life, it seems, will never be the same again. Ronnie’s single-minded determination to transform her introduces her to a whole new unconventional world, full of quirky characters and new ideas that, for Edith, finally get the sixties swinging.
Free of her abusive father and her weak, defenseless mother, the changes are swift and dramatic as Edith’s coming of age becomes an adventure-filled, roller-coaster ride until her father comes back to haunt her and threatens to ruin everything. Where will it take her and how will it end? Who will win and who will lose? And just what does a girl ‘gotta’ do when a girl’s just ‘gotta’ do it, as she chooses between love and money?
