This provocative and riveting four-part drama tells the story of Sugar, an alluring, intelligent young prostitute who yearns for a better life away from the brothel she is attached to, run by the contemptible Mrs Castaway. Highly sought after and sexually adept, Sugar finds her only comfort in the secret novel she is writing in which a murderous prostitute takes revenge on her clients. However, things change for her when she meets wealthy businessman William Rackham. Sugar is a thrilling antidote to William's life, saddled with a pious brother, Henry Rackham and fragile wife, Agnes Rackham. Agnes regularly endures visits from the invasive physician Doctor Curlew, leaving her unable to perform her wifely duties. William ensconces Sugar as his mistress and she soon grows accustomed to her new life. Yet unbeknown to William, Sugar begins to hatch a plan which sets a series of events in motion that will change their lives forever...
