They manage to persuade four fellow W.I. members to pose nude with them for an' alternative' calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire and hordes of press soon descent on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of ther new-found fame.
