Synopsis

An adaptation of Virginia Wolf's 1925 novel about a melancholic middle-aged society woman--"a perfect hostess"--who, thrown into a crisis, reflects upon her life as a politician's wife during the days of World War I. Her story takes place over the course of one day and is juxtaposed with that of a badly shell-shocked World War I veteran whose own day will end in suicide. The two stories overlap with news of his death reaches the party.
