The year is 1909. After posing nude for her illicit art class, Victoria Darling is expelled from her French finishing school and returns in disgrace to her home in London. Shamed and scandalized, Vicky's parents inform her that she is to marry the wealthy gentleman they have selected. But Vicky dreams of the freedom to pursue her ambition of becoming a painter. When she falls in with a group of suffragettes, Vicky's dreams seem to be within her reach at last. But just how much is she willing to sacrifice for art, and for the man who may be her artistic muse?
