It is summer 1962, when we first encounter Florence and Edward, a young couple in their early twenties, on their wedding day. Now on their honeymoon, they are dining in their room at a stuffy, sedate hotel near Chesil beach in Dorset.

Out on the beach on their fateful wedding day, one of them makes a major decision that will utterly change both of their lives forever.
