It is 1945 and Hull is celebrating the end of the war in Europe. But for two young people attending one of the many street parties the future looks grim. Sixteen-year-old Dorrie Bellows, at odds with her parents, dissatisfied with her physical appearance and frustrated with her job at the metal box factory, dreams of a better life. Rob Steyart, forced to live with his grandmother when his father is lost at sea and his mother contracts TB, is lonely and afraid of what tomorrow might bring. Rob gives all his affection to his only friend - Dorrie, and her rascally pet mongrel, Jake. Dorrie determines to make her dreams come true and, stranded by snow in York in the terrible winter of 1947, she takes refuge in a hotel run by Norman and Denise Gill - and discovers a way out of her old life. Rob is less fortunate. When his grandmother dies, he is sent to an orphanage and later shipped of to Australia. After a harsh introduction to this new world, he grows up to make a fresh start. But he never forgets Dorrie...
