  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

After the death of their father, Madeleine invites her sister Dinah to stay in her elegant London home. Madeleine's husband, Rickie, is now effectively head of the family, and a man of persuasive charm and sophistication. Efforts to find a husband for the free-spirited Dinah seem to pay off at last, but having announced her engagement, Dinah is secretly told by Rickie to call it off. The reason remains unspoken - as they are both aware of a profound mutual attraction. So begins a wild affair, as Rickie and Dinah's illicit passion spirals into deception, offering ecstasy and despair in equal measure and, finally, as the sisters attempt a reconciliation, an insight into the heart's capacity for forgiveness.
