Six women, six birthdays. But will they get what
they want, what they need, or what they deserve?
Scarlett spends her 10th birthday in hospital
and learns that growing up might be rather trickier than she thought. Della reckons she's gonna be getting exactly what she wants on her 21st - and from a couple of different directions, too. What Sophie, now 30, really needs is a bit of honesty from her husband - and possibly her hairdresser. And Jessica (who may or may not be 40) is throwing a showbiz
party - but will it relaunch her career? Millicent wants to go home to Montserrat. Instead she
is going to have to spend her 50th birthday cleaning.
And Constance, now 60, has gone, well, too far this time... Sparky and sharp, touching and funny, birthday is all about growing up and growing older. But not necessarily any wiser.
