It's fair shares for all in Austerity Britain (1947-style)! But in the little town of Shepardsford, humble chiropodist Gilbert Chilvers is still struggling to bring home the bacon. The only light on the horizon is a private function to celebrate the forthcoming marriage of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip.

Members of the Town Council are fattening up a highly illegal pig called Betty for a lavish banquet in honour of the royal couple – it's going to be the social event of the season and Gilbert's wife Joyce is determined that they should be invited. But when the longed-for invitation fails to materialise, the two of them resolve to do whatever it takes to get their fair share of the banquet's illegal pork roast!
