London, 1937: Harriet Carmichael must battle new nanny Ada Molesbridge for the love of her young daughter:
ADA: When it comes to whose child, Flora might decide. Who she cleaves to. Whose bed she chooses in the middle of the night. Who she loves.
HARRIET: Don't be ludicrous. She's my daughter, my flesh and blood. She belongs to me.
ADA: Flesh and blood is one thing. But belongs. Slippers, candlesticks, necklaces, they belong. Ask her who she chooses. Go on, wake her. Ask her. We're all people, aren't we. All human beings... Not mistress and servant, you said. Let her choose.
