Based on Jane Austen's novel, "Persuasion" is set in England in 1814. Eight years before the story begins, Anne Elliot (Amanda Root) was engaged to a young naval officer, Frederick Wentworth (Ciaran Hinds), but she allowed herself to be persuaded by her trusted friend Lady Russell (Susan Fleetwood) to break off the engagement, due to Wentworth's poor financial status. The break produced deep unhappiness in Anne and intense indignation in Wentworth.
Wentworth, now a rich and successful captain, returns to find Anne's family on the brink of financial ruin and his own family tenants in her home...
