It is Florence, 1934. A diverse group of women meet each afternoon for tea. There is Lady Hester Ransom, widow of the British Ambassador to Italy. Arabella is a singer and artist. Georgie is an eccentric American archaeologist. Elsa is also an American, and brash and reckless with it. And finally Mary, who has virtually adopted a young Italian boy named Luca. As the political climate shifts towards fascism, the ladies must face some inevitable changes, and Luca must face his own responsibilities.

The ‘ladies’ are brilliant in this film and bring light and humour to an otherwise heavy storyline. The film is beautifully done with wonderful scenery.
