When Annie's husband John Dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Women's Institute members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. They calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put the the test under the strain of their newfound fame.
Based on the true story of 11 Wisconsin members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund, this tale of philanthropy and friendship is both funny, poignant and heartwarming.
