Set in an alternative nineteenth century where savage packs of wolves roam the snow bound countryside. This dark and atmospheric fantasy sees Lord and Lady Willoughby heading overseas leaving their daughter Bonnie (Emily Hudson) and her orphaned cousin Sylvia (Aleks Darowska) left in the care of the children s new governess, the sinister Miss Slighcarp (Stephanie Beacham). Slightcarp and her accomplice Grimshaw (Mel Smith) are plotting to steal the family fortune, and sabotage the Willoughby s ship. When news arrives that the Willoughby s are missing, Miss Slightcarp banishes the children to a workhouse, and dismisses all but two, James (Richard O Brien) and Pattern (Jane Horrocks), of the servants.
