Sally, a failed music hall performer, and her father take over a pub near the John Brown & Company shipyard at Clydebank. When the closure of the yard threatens to put many out of work she leads a campaign to persuade the government to reconsider the decision.


Made shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War, it was Fields' last British film.[3] It was shot at Islington Studios with sets designed by Alex Vetchinsky.[4]
