The Edwardian era is coming to an end and in Chester a young maid, Emma, strives to keep her family from poverty.
Driven by a desire to avenge the death of her sister, who had committed suicide after falling pregnant and being abandoned by the father, Emma attempts to trace the man responsible.
A chance meeting with another young and struggling servant, Alice, introduces Emma to the affluent Waters household and the spirited suffragette, Victoria.
As Emma learns of Alice's violent ex-fiance Bert, it becomes apparent the two girls' lives may be linked in more ways than one. And just as Emma begins to find a love of her own, she is drawn into danger as she realises that she may not be the only one seeking revenge.
