Rita (Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky) is one of 187 women from all walks of life who work for the Ford Motor Company in 1960s England. Paid less than their male peers while enduring the condescension of their supervisors, the plucky sisterhood, led by Rita, agitates for their right to fair pay. Capturing the imagination of the public and the attention of progressive politician Barbara Castle (Miranda Richardson) with their fight for equality, these courageous women must stand together to win a victory for women everywhere.
Sparkling with humor, pathos, and beguiling imagery, this ensemble drama captures the modern agonies of raising a family as four couples try to cope with their particular realities. As three of these couples struggle with the tough decisions presented by their impending parenthood and the fourth mourns the accidental death of their child, Mamas & Papas takes shape as an intimate, authentic exploration of the joys and heartaches of being a parent.
