Every year, the Pye family, like many other families, has a photograph taken in a studio and sends copies to relatives. In 1914, this is a very special photograph, because John Pye, the son of the family, has volunteered to fight in France and he has just been issued with his uniform. Mr Stott, the photographer, is impressed but his long-suffering wife, has no illusions about the imminent war. During the following two years, the Pyes turn up for the annual photograph until, eventually, in 1916, there is just a gathering of women. What is discovered is that the war has imprisoned some women and liberated others. Nothing will ever be the same again…
