A SINGLE THREAD takes place in 1932, where Violet has become a "surplus woman" after the deaths of both her brother and her fiance in World War I. She saves up enough money to move away from her cold mother, and finds a community in a group of women who sew the kneelers for the grand cathedral in town. However, she must deal with the next war on the horizon as well as a world that doesn't wish for women like her to succeed.
