Grade Level:
What happens when a perky supermarket manager from West Yorkshire finds herself at the head of a political movement that sweeps her into office as Britain's new prime minister?

Jane Horrocks (Little Voice, Absolutely Fabulous) stars as Ros Pritchard, a perfect boss and attentive mother hen to her workers at Greengages Superstore in rural Eatanswill, until one day a fistfight erupts outside between two local candidates for Parliament—men, of course. After breaking up the scuffle to the applause of bystanders and reporters, Ros considers what kind of candidate she herself would be. Egged on by the media, who see her as a breath of fresh air during a lackluster campaign, Ros impulsively files as a candidate.

In no time, she is leading a feminist revolution in British politics, with like-minded women all over the country following her example to run for Parliament as part of the new Purple Democratic Alliance. And before you can say "throw the rascals out"... Ros is detailing plans for moving England's capital, demoting the queen, and doing something about global warming.

Special DVD features include: a link to the Masterpiece Theatre Web site; and scene selections.
