Little Women

In 19th-century Massachusetts, with their father away serving in the Civil War, the women of the March family--the loving matriarch, Marmee, and her four daughters, Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth--are left all alone to fend for themselves. Faced with genteel poverty, the fledgeling author, Jo March, is struggling to make a name for herself in male-dominated New York; considerate Meg is now married, and the artistically inclined, Amy, is in Paris with their affluent Aunt March; however, the news of talented Beth's illness will reunite the sisters under the same roof. But, more than anything in the world--much to the disappointment of the handsome next-door neighbour, Laurie--the fiercely independent Jo yearns for freedom. Must all stories end with a wedding?
