William Hurt and Kenneth Branagh star in this romantic drama directed by Lesli Linka Glatter. Wealthy but impotent businessman Arthur Barret (Hurt) employs Roger Martin (Neil Patrick Harris) to perform the one task he cannot do: impregnate his wife, Eleanor (Madeleine Stowe). Roger and Eleanor fall in love, however, and Barret threatens to kill Roger if he returns to the house. When Eleanor discovers Roger's body in a pauper's graveyard, she believes that Barret has had him killed. Barret's nephew, Father McKinnon (Branagh), teams up with Eleanor to uncover the truth.
