On a warm spring day in 1924, housemaid and foundling Jane Fairchild finds herself alone on Mother’s Day. Her employers, Mr. and Mrs. Niven, are out and she has the rare chance to spend quality time with her secret lover. Paul is the boy from the manor house nearby, and Jane’s long-term love despite the fact that he’s engaged to be married to another woman, a childhood friend, and the daughter of his parents’ friends. But events that neither can foresee will change the course of Jane’s life forever.
“Shimmers with confident filmmaking, fine performances and a belief in the melancholic resonance of a lovers’ sanctuary as something difficult to let go of.” —Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
