Kaylene Larsen's dream finally came true: beautiful twins from an in vitro procedure. But when Kaylene needs home care, the nurse she hires is none other than the egg donor herself -- and the crazy woman has come to claim "her" babies.
Pour some tea and we'll exchange stories. In flashbacks.
Which is what Margaret Lockwood says to Joan Greenwood..."You tell me your story, and I'll tell you mine," so they take alternating turns, five minutes at a time, making this Brit sudser no problem for the placement of television commercials.
Lockwood is running a home (reform school) for juvenile delinquents and Greenwood is a certified J.D. but Lockwood gets first turn at tell-me-yours and I'll-tell-you mine. Well, Lockwood had wealth, beauty and position but her husband (dry-as-a-desert Ian Hunter) wasn't much in the loving department, so she was unhappy.
Greenwood had none of these items, and was also unhappy.
After alternating flashbacks---which beats the heck out of flashbacks-within-flashbacks---Lockwood divorces Hunter because he hired a nurse to take care of their child, so she ups and divorces him for that and a couple of other reasons. She weds dashing-and-daring Dennis Price, but he drowns. Lockwood takes the job at the J.D. home.
Greenwood came from squalor and a home with many kids, and ran away to the big city and is soon with child but the fast-talker who put her in that position isn't interested in marrying anybody who would be dumb enough to believe anything he says. Greenwood tries to gas the child, and fails but is sent to the home ran by Lockwood.
This takes about 80 minutes to unfold---five minutes at a time for each story--- and then Lockwood takes Greenwood to Judge Ian Hunter's court to help her get her baby returned, and there may be some irony in this. And there may not be.
