Goofs

Cynthia responds "You were homeless?" in surprise when she hears that Mrs. Lacey used to sleep on the streets with her baby. In the 1950s Britain, the term "homeless" typically had a different meaning and was not the equivalent of sleeping on the streets. Homeless people were typically transient individuals who had no family connections or social support, or sometimes families living in welfare homes. These homeless often relied on charities or institutions, but they were not necessarily unhoused. A better term for this era would have been the slang "sleeping rough," which is still used today in the UK. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Mature Jenny: [narrating] The River Thames pulsed through the heart of the East End like its blood, sustaining its people, and taking with it much they had thrown away or lost. For some, it marked beginning of a journey. For others, it became a channel of return, bringing back the missing and the loved, the forgotten, and the longed for. It was often an escape route, and sometimes the road home.
