Two feisty, free-spirited women are connected by a charismatic poet who loves them both.
The passion and pathos of legendary poet Dylan Thomas is told through the lives of two women. Vera Phillips and Dylan were childhood sweethearts; fast forward ten years and the two reconnect in war-time London. Sheís working as a singer whilst heís churning out propaganda scripts for government in aid of the war effort. The two feel the thunderbolt once more, but Thomas is now married to the adventurous Caitlin. Despite their love-rival status, the women form a surprising friendship; whilst Caitlin indulges in her own infidelities she knows her husbandís connection with Vera is something deeper.
In Veraís life the turmoil continues. She marries her devoted admirer William Killick, but when William is posted abroad on a dangerous assignment behind enemy lines Vera returns with her friends to Wales, where the battle between her heart and head becomes more intense.
William, scarred by war, comes back a changed man and finds that Vera is no longer the carefree cabaret girl he married. Neighbourhood gossip, together with Dylanís open mockery of soldier-heroes, fuels Williamís anger. Enraged, he stages a violent attack that forces Vera to choose between the men in her life and the friend that she loves.
