In a ramshackle Chelsea flat, Bohemian landlady Vera Lyndon watches over a motley crew of young people trying to somehow make a go of life in London. Her paying guests are young, poor and uncertain of their jobs. They write novels, play the ukulele and dance to the tune of a wind up gramophone.

They have little more than love, art and literature on their minds. But their chaotic household is threatened by the arrival of Peter, an “almost too good-looking” young artist with a purpose of his own.
