A documentary comprised of Gillan Armstrong's three short films which follow the fortunes and misfortunes of a trio of working class women from Adelaide, Australia now coupled with a present-day study following the lives of their daughters.

In "Smokes and Lollies" (1975) the girls were 14 years old; in "Fourteen's Good, Eighteen's Better" (1980) they were 18 years old; in "Bingo, Bridesmaids and Braces" (1988) they were 26 years old; and in the present film they are now mothers of 14-year-olds.
