Three fun-loving students
Aged 18 and house-sharing for the first time
It’s 1984 and as Prince says ‘Let’s Go Crazy’
Aged eighteen, three women join forces at university. Life is fun. Life is intense. Together they feel unbeatable. 
As Di and Viv and Rose grow up, chance and choice put their closeness to the test. They must thrash out how to work, how to love, how to live.
