1949. London. On the eve of her beloved son’s wedding, Alicia Christie inexplicably steals a black chiffon nightdress from a department store. The horrified family bring in a psychologist to assess her. When it transpires that Alicia sleepwalked into her son’s fiancé’s bedroom who was wearing black chiffon the implications are horrific. Her relationship with her son is put under a microscope. Negotiating a feuding family and facing a choice of public shame or prison, Alicia’s world begins to fall apart.
