In the midst of the Second World War, a newly graduated Grace Steele decides to join the war effort, moving across the country to work in a munitions factory. There she meets a group of vivacious women whom she quickly befriends. They help her settle into her new village life and introduce her to the charming Canadian soldiers at the local pub full of dancing and drinks. None of the boys catches her eye but Grace swiftly becomes enamoured with one of the factory girls - Ruth Williams. 

The film will follow the girls through the final months of the war as they navigate this new love and what it means for them when the war is over and the men finally come home.
