Joyce teaches literacy to adults, George and Thelma.
George has lost his job, his family and home through his inability to read. Thelma a nanny, is struggling to hide her illiteracy from her employers who expect her to teach their small child basic reading skills as well as working as their domestic help.
Kevin the school caretaker, also illiterate, tries to hide the fact behind loutish bigoted behaviour.
