Jo and her mother, Helen, live a transient life in the grey, bleak tenement houses of Manchester, continually moving in an attempt to stay one step ahead of angry landlords. Left by herself as her mother spends evenings away with her latest boyfriend, Jo meets Jimmy, a black sailor on shore leave, and starts a brief relationship which is abruptly ended when Jimmy skips town. As Helen moves in with her new husband, Jo sets out to lead an independent life and soon starts an unusual, loving relationship with a young, closeted homosexual named Geoffrey who is trying to escape problems of his own.
