 Set on the windswept Moors this famous love story between Cathy Earnshaw and Heathcliff is a haunting tale of Gothic suspense. Young foundling, Heathcliff, is taken in by Mr. Earnshaw and brought up alongside his own children Hindley and Cathy. Whilst Hindley feels bitterly towards the ‘intruder’, Cathy sees Heathcliff as a new playmate and they form a close relationship as they grow up. Arrogant and free-spirited, Cathy captures Heathcliff’s heart and soul but ultimately his love is not enough for her. Betrayal and despair of those around him eventually drives Heathcliff’s need for revenge.
