Set in the fictional village of Highbury, Austen follows the charming but insensitive Emma Woodhouse as she sets out on an ill-fated career in match-making. Adopting the pretty but dreary Harriet Smith as her subject, Emma creates misunderstandings and chaos as she attempts to find Harriet a suitor – until she begins to realize it isn’t the lives of others she must try to transform, but her own.
