Synopsis:
The story takes place in Boston in the aftermath of the American Civil War - a time ol political and social turmoil. Verena Tarrant, a gifted young orator, has attracted the attention of Olive Chancellor (Vanessa Redgrave), who wishes to nurture Verena as an inspirational force for the Woman's Movement. But ranged against her is Basil Ransom (Cristopher Reeve), a handsome male chauvinist, who wants Verena as his wife. Against a backdrop of luminous New England landscapes, battle is joined, and for Olive the struggle will prove an odyssey that forces her to acknowledge her true nature.
