1915. The war is raging in Europe, but the artists and writers of bohemian London continue to live and feast as if nothing was wrong, light-heartedly defying the Victorian morals, scoffing at the pompous declarations of politicians and the conformity of bourgeois painters and sculptors. One beautiful winter afternoon, the writer Lytton Strachey, a bachelor, obviously gay, leaves for the South of England to visit Virginia Woolf's sister, Vanessa Bell and her husband, Clive.
