I believe it is Gloria's brother that is part of these games and impregnates her.

Storyline

A look at three girls, young teens, in the era of the Beatles. Pam lives with parents who haven't spoken directly to each other in two years, using their daughters to talk across the table to each other. Gloria wants to play games with her boyfriend Graeme and ends up pregnant after a kissless, passionless introduction to sex. Stella becomes popular and puts her friendship with Pam on hold. Meanwhile, Pam's father and other predatory men lurk in the shadows around the girls. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Amusing, heartbreaking, and emotionally true
18 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

Funny and tragic stories of schoolgirls who maintain a precarious balance between kissing pictures of the Beatles and committing incest, between childhood and adulthood. Beautiful use of space heaters. The print I saw had muddy sound, though, so I had to strain to hear in some parts.
