Widowed Maggie (Marianne Faithfull) has sold her home in her small English village to pay for extra medical care for her 10-year-old grandson Olly, who’s dying of an unspecified disease. Her son and daughter-in-law desperately want to fly Olly to Australia for a last-chance medical procedure but can’t afford it. While wandering through Soho, one of London’s preeminent red-light districts, Maggie enters a strip bar to ask about a job advertised in their window for a “hostess,” thinking it would involve cleaning up and making tea. This is a fascinating portrait of what a grandmother will do to help save her family. This drama contains many funny scenes.
