Set in 18th century London, Harlots follows the fortunes of the Wells family. Margaret (Samantha Morton) has been sent to America in chains, and Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville) is vanquished. The Wells girls can free themselves of their mother’s feud, but running a lucrative brothel brings new enemies. Inspired by the stories of real women, Harlots is a family drama as explored from the female perspective.
