Meet The Biscuit Tin Secrets Club

It’s 1944 and ROSIE, IDA, PEGGY, PHYLLIS, VIVIAN and NORMA are working in a parachute factory in London. The importance of their work is starkly reinforced when a bloodied chute that failed to open is spread before them for examination.

The image of loss sparks a reaction from all of them but especially for ROSIE, whose secrets from the past come back to haunt her. As they console each other with a rare treat of the day, a tin of precious biscuits, they each agree to keep their mementoes and secrets safe in their own tin – and The BISCUIT TIN SECRETS CLUB is born.

Those secrets are kept hidden for over 50 years and discovered one by one, by the families of the women – and as each is revealed, so are the heroics, heartache, hardship and enduring spirit of a group of women whose lives are forever changed by a world torn apart by war.
