Synopsis

Colonial Trinidad, 1941. Three sisters live a privileged life in Port of Spain with their unworldly brother and his domineering wife, occupying their lives with empty marriages and indiscreet liaisons. They dream of returning home to their adopted country England and the spires of Cambridge where they spent their cosmopolitan youth. But these ambitions of of emigrating soon crumble as World War II escalates and the Trinidadian army are called to serve King, Country and Empire.
