Intimidated via her father, the rector of Knype Hill, Dorothy plays her submissive roles of dutiful daughter and bullied housekeeper. Her suggestions are taken up with the costumes she is making for the church institution play, via the hopelessness of preaching to the bad and by means of bills she can't pay in Thirties melancholy England. without warning her regimen shatters and Dorothy unearths herself down and out in London. She is donning silk stockings, has funds in her pocket and can't keep in mind her identify. Orwell leads us via a panorama of unemployment, poverty and starvation, the place Dorothy's religion is challenged via a social truth that adjustments her life.
