Veronica (McCormack) is desperate to rise above her social station and gain an education. She also wishes to marry a handsome aristocrat, who will help her achieve her desires. However, she takes a rather more alternative route when her mother recommends she take on the family business and become a courtesan.
Shot with a loving eye, the costumes and the locations are sumptuous and everything develops beautifully, if somewhat unbelievably, until the very end when everything spirals into coutroom melodrama.
