Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. A frail Queen Anne occupies the throne & her close friend Lady Sarah governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health & mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing & Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions & she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.
