In the 1950s, the Lawler family move from a house in the streets of Victorian Liverpool to a house in Kirkby. A new town, a new home - and a sea of grey pebble-dash. David's mum welcomes the shiny new future as does his socialist dad - but David pines for the old neighbourhood. Beyond their new home, the once rustic world of the old Kirkby is in fast retreat. Pubs and 'mobile shops', priests and politicians soon clutter the landscape and 'Z-cars' patrol their beat on the lookout for trouble - it maybe a new town but the old problems remain. Soon David's a teenager and he and his 'rock 'n' roll' friends seek fame on the back of a few basic guitar chords, but stardom has other young men in mind and so the world of work beckons. David is recruited into retailing and with his boss, Claude Seeback, helps to launch a revolutionary new type of store - the supermarket. And the years roll by: the Cold War, Sputniks circling in space, 'rock 'n' roll' blaring from pirate radio stations. David's working in an engineering factory and there he meets Harry, a life-changing encounter. Something is stirring in the air - progress and peace? Perhaps - or perhaps not.
