About this show

Cautious, sensible Caroline Abbott journeys to Italy as a chaperone for her irrepressible friend Lilia, but everything goes wrong when Lilia suddenly becomes engaged to a dentist's son. The troops arrive in the form of Lilia's brother-in-law, Philip, who has come to try and break the engagement. Philip fails, however, and a hotly contested baby results. Sweeping melodrama and sardonic humor meet in Tuscany as Philip and Caroline's ideals are challenged in the subsequent battle over the fate of the infant.
