Set in the mid-1920s, celebrated poet and writer Robert Graves returns from war traumatised and creatively struggling. It takes young poet Laura Riding to re-ignite Robert’s passion, and with the blessing of his wife, Nancy, his muse becomes his lover. With the three of them sharing a life, soon, Laura’s attention turns to Nancy, and a complicated relationship that scandalised society threatens to risk everything they have.
