In the late 1930s the famous actor Michael Redgrave became close friends with the celebrated poet Stephen Spender. Through families’ notebooks, journals and memoirs, and Stephen's poems, Vanessa Redgrave discovers the love affairs that they remembered, and the hopes and fears of the generation that confronted the fascist seizing of power in Europe.
