The year is 1962 and Elvis is King of Rock & Roll. Maisie Green and her best pal Chrissie Dalton are both sweet sixteen and ready to discover what their world, and particularly the boys in it, has to offer them.Working as Chocolate Packers in Keillers Sweet Factory in Dundee, Lizzie has secret ambitions to improve herself and her life. Not for her the lot of her fellow workers, she is going to be different. But, Maisie hasn't bargained on the complexities of finding 'the one' the man who could sweep her off her feet and change her life forever, nor for the jealous people she would meet on her way up the 'social ladder.'Chrissie on the other hand, is quite content with her lot, till a sailor comes into her life and turns it upside down, making her too long for a better life away from the local teddy boys and greyness of the housing scheme where they both live. There are many hurdles to jump over for both girls in this romantic romp through the 'swinging sixties' and their experiences of the world and the men they encounter, where two-timing and sexual tension rules, teaches them about who to love and who not to trust. Then as the year ends on Hogmany, they are both faced with the biggest decision of their lives. Will they make the right choices and find their happy ending or can an old head never fit onto young shoulders? For Maisie and Chrissie, will Hogmany find them jiving happily into 1963 or drowning their sorrows?
