Mike Leigh's film explores the changing face of friendship as times goes by. Hannah (Katrin Cartlidge) and Annie (Lynda Steadman) shared a flat together at college, but have not seen each other for six years. They meet up for the weekend, reminiscing about their student days and the characters they used to know. These include their flatmate Claire, Adrian Spinks (with whom they both had flings), and Ricky, Annie's unstable would-be suitor.
