Set in the summer of 1959, when the impact of European migration and the rise of women’s liberation is about to change Australia forever, a shy schoolgirl, Lisa, takes a summer job at the prestigious Sydney department store, Goode’s. There she meets the ‘ladies in black’, who will change her life forever.
