WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A comfortable house in Surrey. When the orphaned Lois Relph accepts a marriage proposal from an older man, Eustace Gaydon, she believes she's been rescued from an uncertain future. Establishing a successful business as a dress designer, Lois leaves her fortune in her husband's hands. But when one of her devoted step-daughters needs her help, Lois is forced to address what drew Eustace to her in the first place - and, at last, to face the dark truth at the heart of her marriage. This gripping drama is a searing look at manipulation, money and matrimony. What price a woman's autonomy within a man's world?
