A caleidoscopic play hosting stories of work and worth of the downtrodden women who toil in the potato fields of the Fens, an agrarian community in East Anglia. The women live like serfs; they plod from day to day only with the help of such opiates as religion, Valium, booze and sex. The principal character is Val, a woman who leaves her husband and two daughters for a lover - only to find herself eternally bound to the children she left behind.
