October 1921: Constance, Lady Chatterley, and her husband Clifford have been living at Wragby Hall on the Chatterley estate in the heart of Englands mining country for a year or two.
Four years earlier, and just a few months after they married, Clifford, who was serving as a lieutenant in the British Army, returned from Flanders permanently paralysed from the waist down. Winter has descended on everything. Constance whiles away monotonous days, trapped by her marriage to Clifford and her sense of duty. Sad and indifferent to everything, she feels her vital energy gradually ebbing out of her. Her sister Hilda rushes to her aid. She demands that Clifford employ a nurse to look after him, taking the burden off Constance. Mrs Bolton moves into Wragby Hall, and Constances new life begins.
Spring time soon comes around. Outside, nature awakens, accompanying Constance on her first walks in the forest. But the forest is also the domain of Parkin, the gamekeeper of the estate. Parkin leads a life of self-imposed solitude in his house in the heart of the forest. The film is the story of his relationship with Constance. It traces the profound impact he has on Constances life; their first awkward encounters and their subsequent discovery of each other; her slow sensual awakening, and his lengthy journey back to life.
Following their initial meeting, the road towards true love and fulfilment is a long one, during which, through their relationship, they will reinvent their entire world.
