Maggie's grandson Olly (Corey Burke) is stricken with some unspecified but life-threatening disease. All attempts to cure him have failed but there's one last hope. If he can travel to Australia within the next couple weeks, there's a medical procedure that could save his life. Of course the boy's parents can't afford it so Maggie, who's already sold her home to pay for the boy's medical expenses, is determined to figure out a way to help. She's turned down for a variety of jobs since she's never really worked before. Then she happens upon a sign in a window that says "Hostess Wanted." She applies, thinking it will involve making tea. But the establishment in is the midst of Soho's red light district and it happens to be a strip club called Sex World.
