Ivy & Joan archive Ivy is a waitress in a Blackpool hotel whose glory days are in the past. A new management team has stepped in to change its failing fortunes buy Ivy, like the tatty fixtures and fittings around her, soon finds out that her presence is surplus to requirements. The hotel that has been her life no longer wants her and now it is time to move on. Buoyed by the futile hope of the long lost love of her life returning to marry her, she prepares to step out into the harsh reality of the outside world. Joan, an amateur painter, travels to Venice, the city of dreams, but her dreams end there. She loses herself in fantasies of a new life, a life that will offer her an escape from her loveless marriage and the drabness of the everyday and a new start of art, culture and the finer things. Deep in her reverie, she does not notice as her world starts crumbling around her.
