London. 1922. Virginia Woolf, darling of the Bloomsbury group, and Vita Sackville-West, aristocrat and siplomat's wife, meet at a dinner party. Though both  are married, their mutal attraction soon develops into a tempestuous love affair that spans the next two decades. From Vita's excursions to Europe, the Americas and Persia and the creation of her much-loved garden at Sissinghurst, through to Virginia's literary success with ORLANDO and constant struggle with depression, their love letters record an extraordinary bond that only death could break.
