Cornwall 1792. Ross plunges into a highly speculative mining venture which threatens not only his family`s financial security but also his turbulent marriage to Demelza.
When Ross and Elizabeth`s old attraction rekindles itself, Demelza retaliates by becoming dangerously involved with a handsome Scottish cavalry officer. With bankruptcy an increasingly real possibility, the Poldarks seem to be facing disaster on all fronts.
