Based on Edith Wharton's last unfinished novel, published posthumously in 1938, this lavish BBC drama follows the story of four dashing and sprited American beauties who, unable to break into the upper-crust elite of New York society, launch themselves into the English world of the 1870s. Accompanied by their English governess, the girls descend on the unsuspecting English aristocracy, charming them with their beauty and their father's wealth. Before long, their new names and the titles that go with them guarantee that they will never be so disadvantaged again. But at what cost?
