Persecuted and hounded by the public and press - Major Charles Ingram, Diana Ingram and Tecwen Whittock head to court.
At first it seems the case for the prosecution is a fait accompli, but as the case for the defence gets underway, the jury learn there is far more to the story than they know.
Alas, when faced with a fifty-fifty question, they return with a verdict of guilty.
Paul Smith triumphs over those who sought to hack his life’s work, but victory does not taste as sweet as he might have imagined.
The Ingrams return to a life in tatters to find that, despite losing everything, their love for one another remains.
