SHE'S LEAVING HOME

Synopsis

Liverpool late 1950s, sixteen year old Martha is leaving home. It is a time of many escapes: Nureyev defects in London; Gagarin escapes the earth's atmosphere to be the first man in space; the Beatles escape Liverpool to seek their fortune in Hamburg. In Britain the drab 50s are giving way to the lively 60s and the young sense it.
