Description: It is 1848, and Heathcliff is tormented by the loss of Cathy, his deceased lover and eternal soul mate. Heathcliff conceives a plan to exact his hateful revenge on those around him. It is now many years earlier, 1815, and Mr. Earnshaw returns to Wuthering Heights from Liverpool with a young orphan, Heathcliff. Earnshaw's son Hindley immediately resents Heathcliff, while daughter Cathy forms a deep bond with the mysterious boy. Ten years later, Hindley inherits Wuthering Heights and uses his power to treat Heathcliff poorly. Meanwhile, Cathy's connection with Heathcliff deepens and blossoms into love. However, an unexpected stay at the Linton home opens Cathy's eyes to the affections of Edgar Linton. Will Cathy choose a life of comfort and wealth with Edgar Linton or will she succumb to her love for Heathcliff?
