When married hairdresser Rita enrolls on a university course to expand her horizons, little does she realise where the journey will take her. Frank is a tutor of English in middle age whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright hairdresser who is eager to learn. Their relationship as teacher and student blossoms, ultimately giving Frank a new sense of self and Rita the knowledge she so craves.
