Plot Summary
Danilo (Joseph Long) and Rosa (Anita Zagaria) are lovebirds determined to thwart the arranged marriage Rosa's mother (Eileen Way) has planned for her. They sneak out of their tiny Italian village and years later find themselves living in London with their children and, ironically, Rosa's mother. The family's fortunes are mixed: Danilo heeds the advice of a talking pig and wins enough money at cards to start a coffee shop, only to then watch it gradually fall into decline.
