More info

In 1898 three young girls leave a Dublin orphanage to enter a life of

domestic service. They are placed in the home of Captain Charles

Whitmore but soon discover that the household is in turmoil. Charles, 

hoping to amass a fortune, is preparing to set off on a long sea voyage,

deliberately leaving his wife Georgina almost penniless to fend for

herself and the servants.

 

Georgina, who has been desperate to break free from a life of violent

marital abuse, is relieved that he will be gone for some years,

but nevertheless the future is frightening.

 

Then help comes from an unexpected quarter. An organisation that helps 

women escape lives of abuse or genteel poverty makes Georgina an 

offer. They propose that her house should become a school

designed to train such women to seek employment in the American West. 

The very idea is at once shocking and appealing.

 

Can Georgina step into the unknown and lead the women under

her care into the future?

 

The orphan maids listen and wonder. Can they too dare to dream

of a better life for themselves?
