George Street, West Yorkshire, houses a gleaming, brand-new telephone exchange where a group of capable girls works the complicated electrical switchboards.  Among them are Cynthia, Norma and Millicent, who relish the busy, efficient atmosphere and the independence and friendship their jobs have given them.

Soon, the jobs of all three girls are on the line. Norma’s romance is in ruins. And Millicent has entered a world of vice . . .
