Past her prime of famed discoveries, fossil hunter Mary Anning spends her days working alone on England’s rugged Southern coastline, searching for common fossils to sell to tourists. One day a wealthy visitor tasks her with entrusting the care of his wife Charlotte Murchison, an offer that, due to her financial situation, she cannot refuse. Proud and relentlessly passionate about her work, the women initially clash. However, soon, the two begin to develop an intense bond forcing them to determine and reconcile with the true nature of their relationship. Set in 1840s England, this stunning period romance tackles issues ranging from social class to the fallout of unrequited love.
