Poet and artist, Gabriel Rossetti has become a reclusive, laudanum addict and is tormented by visions of his dead wife and muse, Lizzie Siddal. His sister, Christina fears he is losing his sanity.
He is preyed upon by conman and blackmailer, Charles Howell who supplies him with laudanum and is intent on manipulating Rossetti into recovering the poems that were buried in Lizzie's grave.
‘The moment I set eyes on you, my destiny was defined.'
Charles Howell actually persuaded Rossetti to exhume Lizzie’s body, an act which haunted the artist until his death.
