This four-hour British miniseries chronicles the travails of novelist Daniel Defoe's classic heroine, Moll Flanders.
Although born inside a prison, Moll was taken in by a rich family, and grew up in the lap of luxury. However, her adult years are marred by a series of five marriages. Later, Moll begins a downward spiral, becoming a petty criminal and a prostitute.
But there's hope for Moll, in the form of an ex-husband -- her one true love -- who comes back to save her. But only time will tell whether they will truly live happily ever after...
