1731 - searching for inspiration inside London's seedy shadowlands, William Hogarth meets the beguiling, Mary Collins, in a Covent Garden brothel. The young prostitute soon becomes his muse, and as the artist strives for integrity, he grows dangerously close to his sordid subject. Torn between virtue and vice, Hogarth ultimately finds the spark he needs and creates "A Harlot's Progress" - the series of paintings which brought him fame, wealth and respectability.
