Paul Morel is the focus of his disappointed and fiercely protective mother's life. Their tender, devoted, and intense bond comes under strain when Paul falls in love with Miriam Leivers, a local girl his mother disapproves of. The arrival of the provocatively modern Clara Dawes causes further tension and Paul is torn bewtween his individual desires and family allegiances. Set in a Nottinghamshire mining town at the turn of the 20th century this is a powerful portrayal of family and love in all its forms.
