When their father dies, two estranged sisters – Marion, a hard-nosed Thatcherite government minister and Isobel, a warm-hearted liberal – forge an uneasy reconciliation. As they try to put their father’s affairs into order, the sisters must deal with the burden of their emotionally scarred, alcoholic young stepmother Katherine. Isobel, always the magnanimous one, reluctantly gives Katherine a job in her graphic design company. It is an act of kindness that turns out to be highly destructive. As a result of Katherine’s manipulation, Isobel’s career and personal life dissolve into chaos and violence.
