Carnaby Street will never be the same after Rita and Lynn embark on a "mod" adventure to fulfill their dreams of excitement and success. In the beginning, they stick together and get by working as cocktail hostesses and dish washers. However, their luck changes in no time and they part ways while swinging into fame: Redgrave as a recording star and Tushingham as "the face of the 1970's". It is not until they meet again that they realize even Smashing Times must come to an end. A great comic relic from the London of the swinging 60's.
