Be My Baby is set in 1964 and tells the story of Mary Adams who is just 19 and seven months pregnant. She is sent to a mother and baby home and has to cope with the shame of her pregnancy and realisation that she must give up her baby for adoption. Mary and the other young mums to be find escapism in the girl-groups songs they love including Chapel of Love (Dixie Cups), I Don't Know What To Do With Myself (Dusty Springfield) and You Can't Hurry Love (The Supremes).
