The action of the play takes place in London. Time: Present day.

Millie Fairways is the beautiful young figurehead of the Fairways financial empire which her father created and which her directors are busily increasing. Bur she can see that no one wants her or loves her for her own sake. Small wonder if she is rather taken with the outspoken candour of the rough-spoken young chauffeur they have given her.

This was the description given by T.S. Eliot to Little Gidding, a small peaceful hamlet in Huntingdonshire, where in the seventeenth century Nicholas Ferrar started a small religious community devoted to work and worship. Nothing remains of the house and farm, but the tiny church has become a place of pilgrimage. This film tries to capture something of Little Gidding's atmosphere and spirit.
