In 7 Up, Lynn's ambition was to work in Woolworth's. Instead, she went to work in a library and by 42 Up was still there, a rock of stability among the three friends. But 42 Up finds Lynn devastated by news that her job as a children's librarian might be abolished. The mother of two wrestles with her anger over losing her life's work and with her fears over how it will change her family's life.

There aren't many pieces of work, especially in film, that have the patience or the longevity or the time to honor the drama of ordinary life; and after all, the drama of what we all have to go through — children, jobs, marriage, the things that touch us — is the big drama of life, far more so than the drama of movies and television.”
