Based on the 1868 novel by Louisa May Alcott, Little Women follows the lives, loves and tribulations of the March sisters (Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy ) and growing up during the American Civil War. Their father is off to war and they rely on their mother, Marmee, to see them through the hard times. Inside each of the girls is a desire to grow up and a desire to keep things the same. They all struggle with, and fear, the inevitability that things will change as they grow older and have lives of their own.
