Bittersweet comedy, set in the 1950s, about a glamorous young woman who returns, after many years in Europe, to her small home town in rural Australia in order to right some wrongs from the past. When Tilly (Kate Winslet) comes home, she not only reconciles with her ailing mother Molly (Judy Davis) but, with her sewing machine, and haute couture style, she transforms the women of the town in such a way that she gets sweet revenge on those who did her wrong. She also falls unexpectedly in love, which leads to her greatest loss and her most destructive deed. Based on the best-selling novel by Rosalie Ham.
