In the 1840s, acclaimed self-taught palaeontologist Mary Anning works alone on the wild and brutal Southern English coastline of Lyme Regis. The days of her famed discoveries behind her, she now hunts  for common  fossils to  sell  to rich  tourists  to  support  herself and  her  ailing widowed  mother.  When  one  such tourist, Roderick  Murchison, arrives  in  Lyme  on the  first  leg  of a European tour, he entrusts Mary with the care of his young wife Charlotte, who is recuperating from a personal tragedy. Mary, whose life is a daily struggle on the poverty line, cannot afford  to  turn  him  down  but,  proud  and  relentlessly  passionate  about  her work, she clashes with her unwanted guest. They are two women from utterly different worlds.  Yet despite the chasm between their social spheres and personalities, Mary and Charlotte discover they can each offer what the other has been searching for: the realisation that they are not alone. It is the beginning of a passionate and all-consuming love affair that will defy all social bounds and alter the course of both lives irrevocably.
