Nelly, a happily-married mother and schoolteacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories, provoked by remorse and guilt, take us back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Charles Dickens with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity. Dickens-famous, controlling and emotionally isolated within his success- falls for Nelly, who comes from a family of actors. The theatre is a vital area for Dickens - a brilliant amateur actor - a man more emotionally coherent on the page or on stage, than in life. As Nelly becomes the focus of Dicken's passion and his muse, for both of them secrecy is the price and for Nelly a life of 'invisibility'.
