1891. Spindrift House, Cornwall.
Edith Fairchild, a talented artist, has just married and is now spending her honeymoon with her husband, Benedict, in the inspiring setting of Spindrift House, inherited by her charming spouse, and enjoying the stunning harbour of Port Isaac. Everything seems to be perfect!
But at some point, everything gets messed up: her honeymoon turns sour, her dreams are all but broken and after a moment of madness and desire she finds herself pregnant with another man’s child.
Edith swears that no one will ever learn her secret and devotes herself to her art. Living in Spindrift House, she is joined by her friends – Clarissa, Dora and Pascal, the secret father of her child. Their joint efforts have turned the house into a promising artists’ community.
But despite their dreams of an idyllic life intertwined with the creation of beauty by the sea, it becomes clear that all is not ideal within their tight-knit and friendly community. Their secrets can tear apart this paradise forever…
