Two housewives in post World War I London suddenly become acquainted. Each in her own way is suffering through an empty marriage and the prospect of a lonely and practically isolated middle age. After seeing a newspaper ad for a secluded coastal villa in Italy, the women set about finding two other ladies to share expenses. Joined by a young socialite and an elderly dowager, the four women are able to find rejuvenation and a new outlook on life and love in the tranquil beauty of their surroundings.
