Life for Alice isn't easy.  Widowed early she takes her young son on a trip to search for a better future.  She briefly achieves her dream of becoming a nightclub singer but it turns out to be fraught with difficulties, forcing her to flee yet again.   At the heart of the narrative is the relationship between Alice and her son Tommy, which reflects without sentimentality the gritty realities, good and bad, of family life.
