“With all the material comforts that English gentry life can bring, Constance Chatterley still has a growing unease and emptiness within her. 
Ensconced in the forlorn but stately Wragby Hall in the English Midlands, Lady Chatterley spends her days acting out her role as wife to her husband, Clifford, who is wheelchair-bound due to a war injury.
The couple take satisfaction from their domestic tranquillity, but grow apart.  The intellectual chatter of Clifford and his peers seems hollow to Connie; and, when her husband throws himself into the management of the family’s colliery, she feels a crushing loneliness.
A woman of sensitivity and a high sense of duty, Connie initially resigns to live her life in quiet repose, like one of the trees she passes on her walks through the woods.  But one day she falls into a potentially scandalous affair with her husband’s gamekeeper, Mellors, a melancholy yet surprisingly tender former soldier from the lower classes.”
