Queen Anne (Colman) is in frail health, often bedridden with infections and other ailments. Sarah (Weisz), her lady in waiting, stands by in affection, not only for her but for a position of power. Sarah’s cousin, Abigail (Stone), is dropped off at the steps of the palace hoping for employment as one of the Queen’s servants.

She has a quick-witted tongue to her knowing just precisely what to say and what to do to get what she wants.
