In 1899, in the provincial heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, unintelligent, unimaginative, unattractive, and unmarried Skylark cooks and sews for her parents and anchors the unremitting tedium of their lives. When Skylark goes away for a week, they find themselves eating at restaurants, reconnecting with old friends, and attending the theater. Is there a world beyond the daily grind and life's creeping disappointments?
