ENGLAND 1936: Ida dreams of becoming a mechanic, Baby of stowing away to America. But a fascist plot to kidnap blonde children throws both girls off course.
Missing kids and a town riddled with Nazi sympathisers mean that Baby's and Ida's dreams will never come true, unless they join forces.
But Baby and her friends are thieves. There’s no way good-girl Ida is going to get along with anyone like that. Especially, when they have the cheek to accuse one of Nettlefield’s most respected citizens, Ida’s Uncle Arthur, of the most awful crimes …
