Once Bridgewater House was the stately home of Lord Pearmain - now the Lord lives in one of the apartments, like the newly-divorced mother-of-three, the legendary screen goddess of the forties and the American PhD student. Over an eventful summer their children, a burglar, a friendly dog, a very capable cleaner and at least one ghost will transform all the residents' lives.
