    When Annie’s husband dies of leukemia, she and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the hospital waiting room.

The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press descend upon the small village of Knapely in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their newfound fame. “Calendar Girls,” by Tim Firth, is based on a true story.
