Kirsty Gilmour is a 30 years old Scottish woman. After spending past 20 years travelling around the world with her glamorous stepmother, Kristy comes back to Scotland. Her stepmother has died and left her with a decent amount of money and the freedom to do what she pleases for the first time in her life. She chooses to buy a cottage in a small Scottish village and she decides to share it with other people as she desires to “live for others”. She invites her old aunt to live with her, hires an upper-class landlord and brings three motherless children to live with her for a while.
