In a small Lancashire cotton town in the 1930s, Daisy Bell dreams her life away. At twenty-six, still a spinster and heiress to her mother's potato pie shop, she's resigned to a lonely old age.

Then she meets Sam, a dashing Clarke Gable look-alike and chauffeur to a wealthy London businessman- and suddenly her life is changed forever...
