A trend in British cinema in the 1950s and 60s, 'kitchen sink' drama took a social-realist approach to film and theatre, often focusing on the working class. In this late example of the genre, Chelsea girl Polly becomes fed up with her privileged world and decides to cross the tracks (or in this case, the Thames) to 'slum it' in grimy Battersea and see how the other half lives. Once there, she gets a job in a factory and makes friends with people whose problems put her own into perspective.
A memorable drama that involves a pregnant teenage girl who shares a flat with an openly gay man.
