Rondo Leaflet took place in United Kingdom 1892.
Matthew Hamilton is a young servant. As he chose the same job as his father without really caring about it, he has no enthusiasm for service and has been fired five times. The servants' association treats him as a headache, and was about to take his name off the books. To his fortune, he got a final chance: working at a ruined peers' house for free. In fact, that house has very many troubles. Maids are very slack in their work because wages are not paid, the house itself is very dirty, and the landlady doesn't have a very good character as well.
