Set in Australia in the early 50s, Tilly Dunnage, a couture dressmaker (Kate Winslett) returns from Paris to the rural town from where she was banished years before for a crime she can’t remember.
Hostile towards her at first, the townsfolk are nevertheless seduced by the glamour of her creations as the intrigue that shaped Tilly’s fate is revealed.
Old scores are settled, the dark underbelly of small-town life is exposed and an explosive denouement seems inevitable.
