The dreary winter of 1922 England gives way to the enchanted spring of Italy. Two ladies who have lost touch with their respective marriages rent an Italian castle to escape the bleakness of their lives. They advertise for other ladies to share expenses. The four strangers embark on a life changing journey, replete with comedic twists and turns. The gentlemen reap the rewards.
