Kate Winslet stars as fossil hunter Mary Anning who walks the coastline to find common fossils to sell as tourist fodder.

Whilst trying to support herself and her mother, Mary agrees to take on Charlotte Murchison (Saoirse Ronan), a wealthy geologist’s wife, as a would-be apprentice. Believing this will help her with her bouts of depression, Charlotte joins Mary to convalesce by the sea. Despite their initial apprehensions, a romantic relationship blossoms between them leading them both to wonder if they ever want to return to life away from the shoreline.
