It is Cambridge, 1915, and Tom, and awkward American graduate, meets Viv. Enchanted with each other, the couple are sucked into a whirlwind romance, but as Tom begins to become successful in the field of literature, Viv’s volatility becomes a problem rather than a quirk. Their swift marriage turns into an impossible love story.
