Description
Information
Summer, 1962. Twenty-year-old Vivien Epstein, a Jewish hairdresser from Manchester, arrives in London following the death of her father. Alone in the world, she is looking for Jack Fox, a man she had a brief but intense love affair with some months before. But the only address she has for him leads to a dead end. Determined to make a new life for herself, Vivien convinces Barb, the owner of Oscar's hair salon in Soho, to give her a job. There, she is swept into the colourful world of coffee bars and clubs - sixties Soho on the cusp of change. But still, Vivien cannot forget Jack. As she continues to look for him, her search leads her into the fight against resurgent fascism in East London where members of the Jewish community are taking to the streets, in and around Ridley Road. When Vivien finds Jack among the protestors crowds at a rally, her joy quickly turns to shock and the course of her life is altered by her discovery . . .
