It’s 1905 in Manhattan. Esther, a gifted seamstress, crafts lingerie for a variety of clientele, including Fifth Avenue socialites and Tenderloin district prostitutes. She dreams of finding a husband and beginning a love-filled marriage. She also longs to open a beauty parlor in Harlem with the money she has quietly saved over the years. Through a series of long distance letters, Esther meets George, and her aspirations appear within reach.
