Synopsis:
When Annie’s husband, John, dies of leukaemia, she and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee for the local hospital’s waiting room. They manage to persuade fellow members of the Women’s Institute to pose nude for an “alternative” calendar. They engage the hospital porter (and amateur photographer) to take the photos.

The news of the calendar spreads around the world with hoardes of press descending on the little village of Knapley – the calendar is a success but Annie’s and Chris’ friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
