Liz has missed an appointment to have an abortion. She has to keep her child, and neither her boyfriend Geoff nor child’s father Neil are too happy about it. She can not decide which partner is better for her, and Neil makes a proposal to her when they attend the wedding of her best friend Prue and Mike. She probably prefers Geoff, but he is preoccupied with his girlfriend Bryony, who returned from abroad. A budding, if a bit loony, young screenwriter Ant, is told, by his women friends, that his latest effort is worthless, and it is tossed onto the beach at Piha. It is picked up by a visiting German who takes it back to a German screenwriter, and it becomes ‘Topless Women Talk About Their Lives’.
