Deptford, 1900. Five raucous, brave and funny young women make a living hacking and scraping carcasses in a Cattle abbatoir. Theirs is a life of long hours and small, hard fought victories. But the foul smelling shed protects against hunger and cold and is a refuge for fallen women. No need to risk a violent marriage or the dangers of childbirth if you can work there with your mates. That is, until new tariffs threaten meat imports, and rumours of sackings begin to circulate. And all this time the local Duchess Lady Helena has decided she will save the girls from their degeneracy, offering lessons in good manners with the bribe of free cakes.
