In the year 1865 in rural England, a young woman, Katherine, is in a loveless marriage to an older man, Alexander. They live with Alexander's father, Boris, and Katherine is forced to maintain a strict schedule and prevented from leaving the house. Boris scolds Katherine for not carrying out her conjugal duties but Alexander shows no physical interest in her. One day both Boris and Alexander have to leave the estate for separate business matters, and Katherine is left alone with the housemaid, Anna, and is free to explore the area to alleviate her boredom. One day she discovers Anna being suspended from the ground in an outhouse by the men who work on the land. She is attracted to one of them, Sebastian, and the next day deliberately encounters him on the land. Read more on Wikipedia.
