It is 1960s England, homosexuality is illegal and the politician Jeremy Thorpe begins a whirlwind affair with a young stable hand, Norman Scott. But when the relationship turns sour and Jeremy's career goes from strength to strength, Norman becomes a secret that Jeremy is desperate to hide…
In 1967, Jeremy becomes the leader of the Liberal Party and the youngest leader of any British political party in a hundred years, but as long as his ex-lover Norman is around, his brilliant career is at risk. Behind the oak-panelled doors of Parliament, Jeremy turns to his friends for decisive action. He can see only one way to silence him for good.
As Jeremy gets one step closer to becoming Prime Minister, Norman demands that old promises should be honoured. With Jeremy's right-hand man Peter Bessell having left for California, pressure mounts on Jeremy - and events conspire, leading to a hapless shooting...
Having survived a bungled attempt on his life, Norman accuses Jeremy of being behind the murder attempt - and goes public.
After years of acrimony between them, Norman and Jeremy finally go head to head in court, with the world watching on.
