Tagline: She had many lovers but only one love.

Plot: This film spans the years 1915-1932 in the life of British painter Dora Carrington. In particular, the story focuses on her relationship with gay writer Lytton Strachey who, like Carrington, belonged to the famed Bloomsbury group. Although they formed a strong bond and even slept together, Strachey's sexual preference impeded him from truly falling in love with Carrington. As a result, the painter married another man, but cheated on her husband numerous times as Strachey watched from the sidelines. Strachey, meanwhile, indulged in many gay affairs, particularly after his book, "Eminent Victorians," made him a celebrity.

Sadly, Carrington's unrequited love for Strachey ruined her life, and resulted in tragedy.
