Amanda Price, a young woman living in Hammersmith, London, spends yet another evening reading her beloved Pride and Prejudice. When she is disturbed by her drunk boyfriend, her annoyance is only exceeded with his unromantic proposal including the top of a beer can as a ring. On hearing a sound in her bathroom, Amanda finds herself face to face with one of her treasured protagonists, Elizabeth Bennet. She seems to have entered Amanda's world through a seemingly unusable door. The incredulous Amanda crosses the threshold to the other side of the door and alas truly finds herself in the household of the Bennets and at the beginning of her favorite novel Pride and Prejudice without an Elizabeth.

When Miss Price and I dance, sir, there shall be nothing sudden.

Nor I. Together we shall make a shambles. But we shall do it with such authority that everyone will stare at us to learn the step.
