In 1953, Wellesely College is a bastion of academic excellence, conservative New England values, and privileged girls for whom diplomas merely pave the way to marrying successful husbands. Enter novice art history professor, Katherine Watson, a California upstart with progressive ideas. At first, Professor Watson's unmarried status and free-thinking teaching methods seem scandalous to both students and faculty. But with a lesson plan, and a love live that are full of surprises, Professor Watson helps everyone she meets open their eyes to see that love and happiness, like art, can look like many different things to many different people.
