Synopsis / Plot
On a beautiful cloudless day a young couple celebrate their reunion with a picnic. Joe Rose and his girlfriend Claire are about to open a bottle of champagne when a cry interrupts them. A hot-air balloon with a child in the basket and an adult being dragged behind it has been ripped from its moorings. Joe immediately joins in with an effort to bring the balloon to safety, but in the ensuing rescue attempt a man is killed.
Witness to this tragic accident is bystander, Jed Parry. Joe and Jed exchange a passing glance - a glance which carries devastating consequences and which indelibly burns an obsession into Jed's soul. Delusional and dangerous, Jed's fixation gradually uproots Joe's life; testing the lmits of his beloved rationalism, threatening the love of Claire and driving him to the brink of murder and madness.
Based on Ian McEwan's best-selling novel of the same name, Enduring Love is a story of love, faith and suspense, and how life can change in an instant.
