NO TEARS FOR TOMORROW

Confessions by a Soho icon comes to life on the mean streets of Soho, some secrets just can't be buried.

THE STORY

A story like no other, Mrs M has lived all her life in Soho, becoming a legendary Soho fashionista icon. Think Vivienne Westwood meets Iris Apfel. At 95 years of age, Mrs M knows her days are numbered. Keeping her illness private, she takes one last trip around her home of Soho, from her morning prayer ritual, taking selfies on the streets, to lunching with her fellow Soho icons. As she walks home, she has a health scare and is taken into a tattoo parlour by the owner, Scott. There, we see Mimi, a feisty party girl not willing to give up the cash she stole from the day's takings. Mimi isn't the only one desperate to survive, Scott also has a confession of his own.

As they wait for the police to arrive, Mrs M takes a trip down memory lane back to 1945 when she worked at "House of Soho" where she too has an unexpected confession to make.

Back in the tattoo parlour, with the police now outside waiting to come in, will they all confess or will they keep their secrets buried in Soho?
