The story of three consenting adults in the privacy of their own home.

June Buckridge (Beryl Reid) arrives at her London flat, lights a cigar, and announces, "They are going to murder me." She is referring to Sister George, the lovable nurse she portrays on British TV's most popular daytime serial. To make matters worse, June begins to realize that she may be losing her long-time lover and doll-cuddling flat-mate Alice "Childie" McNaught (Susannah York). What she doesn't know, however, is that the widowed network executive at BBC, Mrs. Mercy Croft (Coral Browne), is really a predatory lesbian who is after Childie.

George, as her friends refer to her, desperately tries to salvage her character, and her real-life relationship in this entertaining drama that is a classic of its time.
