The Story:
Feeling lost in the shadows of marriage and post-WWI society, two unhappy London housewives
decide to rent a villa in Italy for a ladies-only holiday away, reluctantly recruiting a pair of difficult upper-class women to share the cost and the experience.  There, among the wisteria blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine, the four women clash—and then begin to bond and bloom until the men in their lives disrupt their comfortable truce.  Ultimately, the women rediscover themselves in ways that they could never have expected.
