Born into a wealthy family in northern England, sent to boarding school, and educated by nuns, Ivory Frame escapes to interwar Paris where she finds herself through art, living amongst the most brilliant and bohemian people- the surrealists.
Torn between a volatile and all-consuming affair with a Russian painter, and her creative ambition, Ivory's life is violently interrupted by the Second World War. Now, aged 90, Ivory labours defiantly at her last, greatest artwork - a vast account of animal language. Inspired by the story of surrealist artist Leonora Carrington.
