Set in a Mother and Baby Home in 1964 in the north of England, Be My Baby follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19, unmarried and seven months pregnant. Forcibly sent there by a mother intent on keeping up appearances, Mary – along with the other girls in the home – has to cope with the shame and with the dawning realization that she will have to give the baby up for adoption whether she likes it or not. Despite this – and an overbearing matron – the girls’ youthful effervescence will keep breaking through, as they sing along to the girl-group songs of the period.
