Calendar Girls

Knapely, North Yorkshire. Firm friends Chris and Annie are part of the local Womens' Institute, where nothing dramatic has ever happened. Then Annie's husband dies of leukaemia, and in aid of the local hospital, the ladies propose posing (tastefully) naked for a charity calendar, though this strains relationships all round.
