Summary
The true story of Vita Sackville-West's tortured, public affair with novelist Violet Keppel. Though Vita and her husband, diplomat Harold Nicolson, knowingly cheated on each other throughout their 50-year marriage, it was her liaison with her childhood friend Violet that threatened the marriage. Frank and daring in its depiction of lesbian love, this release includes scenes cut from the original broadcast
