It is 1945, the war is finally over and victory marches fill the streets of London.

Norland Nanny Brenda and her friends, happy that at long last the war is over, hope that they’ll soon leave the days of rationing and worry behind.

Before long Brenda’s skills as a real-life Mary Poppins are in demand again.

Moving from house to house, Brenda never stays long, just enough time to sprinkle a little magic and happiness into the lives of the families she cares for.

This is a warm, uplifting and incredibly moving tale of a 1950s nanny, and her determination to give the children in her care the best possible start in life.
