Synopsis / Plot
20 year old petty thief, Sue Trinder (Sally Hawkins), is part of an elaborate scam to defraud a wealthy heiress, Maud Lilley (Elaine Cassidy), of her inheritance. Encouraged by Mrs. Sucksby (Imelda Staunton) who has looked after her since she was orphaned, Sue assists conman Richard Rivers in his bid to elope with Maud before having her committed to a madhouse and claiming her fortune for himself. But Sue's plans are turned upside down when she falls in love with Maud… and the tale twists further as the young women are separated just as they begin to realise the strength of their passion for each other.
