It Always Rains on Sunday

Brief Synopsis

It's another rainy Sunday in Bethnal Green, in London's East End--and another dull one for Googie Withers: rapping on the bedroom wall to summon good stepdaughter to start the tea; nagging her decent but dull hubby to fix a broken window; battling with late-night-partying-with-married-man stepdaughter; and then running through the rain to the backyard bomb shelter/tool shed to find ex-lover John McCallum, fresh from his Dartmoor prison breakout.
