Governess Sally Goodman has a dark secret, and Ella – a parlor-maid who’s gained Sally’s trust – is determined to exploit that weakness. Influenced by her criminal brothers, Ella persuades Sally to leave Lena in her care for an afternoon just before Christmas. What happens next changes Lena’s life forever.
