The early 18th century; England is fighting the French and a frail, capricious Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) sits on the throne; though due to her poor health she relies on her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) to govern on her behalf. But as the politics of war begin to consume Sarah's time, a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) steps into the breach; beginning a rapidly burgeoning friendship with the Queen that gives Abigail a chance to restore her social status. Soon the balance of power shifts between the women as they jockey for influence with the Queen and the court.
