Francie, a young, coquettish, vain and strikingly beautiful orphan, is transplanted from her working-class Dublin home to the small country town of Lismoyle to live with her older cousin, Charlotte. Socially ambitious, Charlotte schemes to bring about a marriage between Francie and Christopher Dysart, the heir to the local estate. But Charlotte's plans begin to go tragically awry, revealing the depths of her own terrible nature.
