This story is of American Mary Cassatt in Paris in the last century. She was one of the Impressionists and a close friend of the great artist Edgar Degas (Thomas Jay Ryan). Cassatt (Amy Brenneman) is an intelligent, charming and fiercely independent artist with an ordered life in Paris, until her brother and his wife arrive with their three unruly children. At first dreading the presence of the children, she soon finds herself inspired by them and even uses them as models. Her teenage niece Katherine (Charlotte Sullivan), who believes that getting married is essential to positioning oneself in society, plays matchmaker between Cassatt and Edgar Degas. Though the match is not meant to be, Cassatt's feminist ideals greatly influence Katherine and change her life forever and for the better. Likewise, the influence of the children soften Cassatt and inspire her to renew stronger contact with her family back in Philadelphia.
