Harriet is an X-ray technician earning decent wages for a woman in the 1960s, but involved in a passionless, conventional relationship. When she leaves her old life behind and moves into a boarding house in King's Cross, Harriet meets all kinds of different characters: a struggling artist, a lesbian couple, and a landlady with a penchant for tarot cards. Within the confines of the house Harriet discovers true friendship, supernatural powers, passion, danger, and, most importantly, a child who captures her heart forever. Harriet es tecnica en radiologia durante los anos 60, ganando un sueldo decente para una mujer. Cuando decide mudarse a una casa de huespedes en King's Cross, conoce a diferentes personajes: un artista muerto de hambre, una pareja lesbiana y una casera con un interes en las tarjetas de tarot y los horoscopos. Durante su estancia en la casa, Harriet descubre amistad genuina, poderes sobrenaturales y--lo mas importante--una nina que captura su corazon para siempre.
