But despite their gray pasts they long for a bright future, Jeanne by creating stunning dresses for her clients with the help of Peggy's brilliant sketches. Together, they are able create amazing fashions and a more prosperous life than they'd ever dreamed of before the war. But sisterly love can sometimes turn into sibling jealousy.
