Brought up by her mother and grandmother in London's Docklands, Poppy harbours a secret ambition to become a musician like her father. Her father has disappeared, but he's left behind his saxophone and Poppy's dream to become a musician. There is more than a littleof Gran's stubbornness and determination in Poppy, however and the discovery of her Dad's saxophone, secret music lessons and the Salvation Army band bring the stirrings of possibility.
