Travelling the dirt roads of Wessex in search of work, Michael Henchard (CIARAN HINDS) a farm worker, auctions his wife Susan (JULIET AUBREY) and baby daughter in a moment of drunken madness at a country fair.

Years later, Susan and her daughter Elizabeth-Jane (JODHI MAY) return, seeking Michael in Casterbridge where he has become a rich and respected member of Wessex society. Driven by the need to make amends, he re-marries Susan. In a tragic twist of fate, however, she dies – but not before leaving a letter containing a shocking revelation.

As a romance blossoms between Elizabeth-Jane and the mayor's charismatic business manager Farfrae (JAMES PUREFOY), Henchard becomes convinced that the young man is determined to destroy him and orders Elizabeth-Jane never to see him again, setting a chain of events in motion that will change their lives forever...
