Shirley Valentine is a comedy about getting lost to find yourself. The heroine is an ordinary middle class English housewife. As she prepares chips and egg for dinner, she ruminates on her life and tells the wall about her husband, her children, her past, and an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on a holiday in Greece to search for romance and adventure. She does escape to Greece, has a hilarious and engaging adventure, and changes her life.
