Storyline

Set in New York City in 1938, a 25-year old named Katey Kontent attempts to rise above the Wall Street secretarial pool into the upper echelons of New York society at the end of the Depression. As much as anything, her challenge is to not lose herself in the romance in Gotham’s high society.
