Intimate Apparel is described as follows in a press release: "In 1905 Manhattan, Esther Mills sews beautiful corsets for a living. Her art and talents have earned her economic independence rare for an unmarried woman of color and allow her access to diverse social worlds. Despite her success, Esther yearns for physical and emotional intimacy, and begins a romantic correspondence with George, a laborer working half a world away on the Panama Canal. Her hopes and dreams are laid bare through a series of encounters with her clients, her landlady, and an Orthodox Jewish fabric merchant with whom she shares an unspoken attraction."
