It is the fall of 1951 at Mount St. Gabriel's, an all-girls school. Tildy, the undisputed queen bee of her class, befriends Chloe, a new student recently orphaned by the death of her mother. Their friendship fills a void for both girls but also sets in motion a chain of events that will affect the course of many lives, including the school's matriarch. 50 years on, the headmistress relives one pivotal night, reaching back to her own senior year, where the roots of a tragedy are buried.
