In 1981, decades after she rose to fame in Hollywood, actress Gloria Grahame is working in England in a modest theatre production when she collapses in a Lancaster hotel. With her health failing, she contacts the Liverpudlian actor Peter Turner, who in his late twenties had become Grahame’s lover when they were both lodging in a Primrose Hill guesthouse in 1978. When Peter takes her back to his family home, to the care of his sympathetic mother, memories of their affair soon come flooding back and a deeper relationship develops between the pair.
