An unusual love story told in three episodes, Tipping the Velvet charts the course of Nan, an ingénue who discovers a sexually charged world of male impersonators, actors and affluent women looking for female companionship in the usually controlled and corseted 1890s. Ultimately, however, Nan learns that she can only truly depend on herself.

He didn’t expect this from me. And I hadn’t expected that we would decide to get married that day, at that moment. Everything happened all of a sudden, but exactly like it was supposed to happen in our day.
