We've got a special kind of love,
The kind that toughens you up,
That you're never sure of,
And it's not enough,
Out where the sunsets hover,
We tear apart each other,
All day you got me going,
There's no way I'll let you know,
That's OK 'cause we're as good as it gets,
In the Wild West.

Mary and Angela are a lesbian couple, if only because there are no better offers. Since they run the local post office, they find themselves in the centre of the local Cornish community, a very strange local Cornish community.
