A shy young poet, Denis Stone, goes to a house party at Crome hellbent on wooing his hosts' niece, only to find that a dashing, if jaded, painter has arrived first. Spurned by the woman he ardently pursues, Denis grapples with the fickleness of desire and discovers that one’s true soulmate may be hiding in clear view.
