The year is 1968. Students are rioting, civil rights are being fought and died for, nuclear bombs are being tested, and war is raging in Vietnam. For three ordinary women, life must go on as normal. Rose must keep her dignity as a nurse in London. Amalia must keep hoping that her son can escape their life in Lisbon. Mrs Johnson in Washington DC must keep writing to her son in Vietnam. For them, just to survive is an act of courage.
