Plot Summary
The media portrays the marriage between Laurence Olivier (Anthony Higgins) and Vivien Leigh (Mel Martin) as one of passionate love, where neither can do wrong. But behind closed doors, their relationship is a different story. Eight years into the marriage, the actor and actress are at the height of their careers -- but they struggle to maintain a peaceful home, in part because of Vivien's bipolar disorder. Over the course of one year, marital fighting and miscarriages exact a further toll.
