Florence and Edward are young university graduates getting married in 1962. She is a talented and ambitious classical musician from a well-to-do family and he is a clever young man from humbler origins.
They go as virgins to the marriage bed in a way that was quite normal then and all but unimaginable now, with their wedding night culminating in a painful, intimately humiliating fiasco with devastating consequences.
