'Bombshells' tells the story of six very different women on the brink. Firstly we meet Meryl, a mother of three, desperately trying to do everything a mother has to do, and find time for a cup of coffee. Then Tiggy comes along, she is a 'cactophile', trying to deliver a speech about cacti. Mary follows, determined to defend her title at her girl's school talent show, only to find that her arch nemesis has stolen her act. Next we meet blushing bride-to-be, Theresa, about to walk down the aisle with the love of her life. Then widower, Winsome, explains how she fills her days and tries to make her life worthwhile. Finally the last character we meet is Zoe, a stage diva making an illustrious comeback.
