London. 1895. Surrounded by friends and supporters, poet, playwright and wit Oscar Wilde awaits arrest for "acts of gross indecency" in his suite at the Cadogan Hotel. Swayed by his transcendent love for Lord Alfred Douglas (Bosie), he dismisses all pleas to seek sanctuary in Europe, choosing instead to face his accusers. Two years later, ravaged by the hard labour of his imprisonment, he is reunited with the young aristocrat in Italy, where the true nature and magnitude of his sacrifice is revealed.
