It's 1925 and Toby of Elmwood Manor loves a man named George who most certainly loves him back. And although they're married to two wonderful ladies- Meg and Sophia- they still love each other firstly. Toby's cousin Meg is in love with Sophia, and Sophia equally in love with her, and under the manor roof they live the life of two married couples, seemingly the same as everyone else, two husbands and wives- two in love pairs.  How complicated can it be?
