In early 1974, a pregnant Andrea Steedman leaves
home to conceal the birth of her daughter Mary
Therese. A few months after she has given birth,
depressed and confused, she agrees to an adoption
under highly irregular circumstances.
Twenty two years later on her deathbed, Andrea
reveals the existence of her daughter to her wealthy brother Warwick, who promises to find Mary Therese.
