His former lover, Hollywood actress Gloria Grahame, had collapsed in a Lancaster hotel and was refusing medical attention. He took her into his chaotic and eccentric home in Liverpool to see her through her last days. Though their affair had ended years before, it was to him that she turned in her final hour of need. Takes place over the course of three weeks in Turner's working class family home.
