“I have spoken very clearly with her and I have told her that she is new here and that she must live how we live.”

A woman arrives in a rural village in pre-industrial England. Her desire is to sew and learn from their simple way of life. But the group soon begins to suspect she is not who they thought she was.

“There’s no point in just making quilts. They have to serve the village. They have to DO something.”
