It is 1850. Margaret Fuller, feminist, journalist, orator and 'the most famous woman in America' is returning from Europe when her ship founders in a hurricane off Long Island. Rescued from the wreckage is Fuller's last book manuscript, which is left in the hands of her younger sister, Anne Thoreau. From this final evidence, what does one sensitive but ordinary woman make of a publicly disgraced woman like Fuller? Miss Fuller poses timeless questions of how we react to agents of change, but also demonstrates the individual cost of striving to change the world for the better.
