It is 1968, and Hylda Baker is a big variety star. However, she has never broken through on the telly. But totally out of the blue, Granada TV wants her for a new sitcom, Nearest And Dearest. Hylda is going to be a major TV star.

Unfortunately for Hylda, she doesn't get on with her co-star, Jimmy Jewel, and the studio is a war zone. To make matters worse Hylda keeps on forgetting her lines. But this masks a bigger problem - Hylda is struggling with the early symptoms of Alzheimer's.
