This adaptation of the beloved French novel by Emile Zola is a rags to riches story of a young woman seduced by the dangerous charms of the modern world. Set against the Victorian splendor of a British department store, "The Paradise" follows Denise Lovett who lands a job as a shop girl and finds herself facing a future filled with never-before-imagined opportunities. Trouble brews at The Paradise as the big day approaches. When a corpse is found in the river, word spreads that it is the body of Burroughs - and suspicion is quickly cast upon Jonas. Meanwhile, Moray cannot deny his love for Denise and plans to call off the wedding. But will he be able to follow through if it means losing The Paradise?
