Storyline

A dashing young Conservative is sent to cut his political teeth by standing for election in a safe Labour constituency in the north. Here he forms a relationship with a single mother living on a council estate who agrees to help him with his campaign, much to the disapproval of his snobbish election agent and her staunchly working-class friends and neighbours. Filmed in Burnley, Lancashire.
