An adaptation of the original novel ‘The Life and Death of the Wicked Lady Skelton’ by Magdalen King-Hall. Directed by Peter Leslie Wild.

Lady Barbara Skelton is beautiful, wild and truly wicked. Forced into a respectable marriage with a man she can’t love, she becomes bored and embarks on a secret life of gambling, highway robbery and violence. But she’s playing a dangerous game. Shadowed by betrayal, threatened by revenge, can Barbara escape her wicked life? Or will she be abandoned to a terrible fate?
