NORTH AND SOUTH

Synopsis

Forced to move from the rural tranquillity of southern England to the northern mill town of Milton, Margaret Hale takes an instant dislike to the dirt and noise of her new home and its inhabitants - even the handsome cotton mill owner, John Thornton. But as she begins to understand the nature of the poverty, events conspire to throw her and Thornton together. Amidst the chaos of industrial unrest, they must learn to overcome the prejudices of class and admit their feelings for one another.
