Lust is the sin that has condemned Linda to spend nine months of her life isolated from the world she knows. In 1964 Australia, the world around her is rapidly changing but she finds herself in a situation where the world has virtually stood still. For seventeen year old Linda, she is about to discover a dark side of life that she never knew existed. When her parents discover that she is pregnant they leave her at Loxely House, a secluded home for wayward girls ran by a group of strict nuns. Among the other girls, Linda is about to discover more about life and the harsh realities that their innocence once protected them from. As her pregnancy moves forward, Linda's life becomes more and more distanced from the world she had always known. She must battle constant change as the world at Loxely House takes its toll on her and the other girls, friends that she will never see again. Linda's story is that of her punishment for her sin of Lust, a story that many women in Australia endured in this time period without choices for women who were unwed and pregnant.
