Six women, six birthdays. But will they get what they want, what they need, or what they deserve?
Scarlett spends her 10th birthday in hospital and learns that growing up might be rather trickier than she thought. 21 today, Della reckons she's gonna be getting exactly what she wants - and from a couple of different directions, too. What Scarlett's mum Sophie, now 30, really needs is a bit of honesty from her husband.
Sophie's sister Jessica (who may or may not now be 40) is throwing a showbiz party - but will it relaunch her career? Della's mother Millicent didn't think she'd spend her 50th on her hands and knees with a bottle of bleach. And Jessica and Sophie's mother Constance - now 60 - has gone, well, too far this time . . .
Sparky and sharp, touching and funny 'Birthday Girls' is all about growing up and getting older. But not necessarily any wiser.
