The last of the current series of films about our lives-now.
Margaret Wheeler and Blanche Rylatt , go into a nursing home to have their babies - both of them girls. The mothers strike up a friendship, gossiping late into the night. But the next morning things start to go wrong. Margaret is convinced she's been given Blanche's baby. She tells
Blanche, 'If your baby's eyes turn brown, she's mine.' Sure enough, Peggy's eyes do turn brown, while Valerie remains blonde and blue eyed ...
So begins an extraordinary story of heartache and humour, of friendship and maternal love. Had they got the wrong babies? If so, what could Margaret Wheeler do? The Rylatts refused even to consider the possibility of a mistake; besides, they had grown to love their changeling child ...
