In 1953, a time when women's roles were rigidly defined, novice art history professor Katherine Watson begins teaching at the prestigious all-female Wellesley College, which despite its academic reputation, is an environment where success is measured by how well the students marry. Encouraging these women to strive for a more enlightened future, Watson challenges the administration and inspires her students to look beyond the image of what is, and consider the possibilities of what could be.
