1981, Charles loves Di, Bucks Fizz is ‘Making Your Mind Up’, Toxteth is rioting and Margaret Thatcher is trying to reform the economy. In a small Welsh village beginning to feel the negative effects of Thatcher’s free market policies, the Royal Wedding gives the community and the Caddock family a chance to forget their problems and unite, but during the course of their celebrations, events will unfold which will change their lives forever.
Fifteen year-old Tammy Caddock has organised a Royal Wedding street party, but her romantic idealism will be crushed when she discovers her newly redundant mother, Linda, is having an affair with her factory boss, Alan. Her stoner dad, Johnny, is oblivious, too busy harbouring dreams of becoming a musician. Against the backdrop of Diana’s fairytale wedding, the family will fall apart, as Linda realises she wants more to life than Johnny, Alan or the village can offer her. While Tammy says goodbye to her innocence, Johnny will try to win back Linda’s heart, and Linda will find the courage to embark on a massive adventure in search of a new life.
