In a cheap Parisian hotel, Oscar Wilde (Rupert Everett) lies on his death bed and recalls his past with wit and irony. Once the most famous man in London, he reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife (Emily Watson), the ensuing reprisal of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas (Colin Morgan) and the devotion of Robbie Ross (Edwin Thomas), who tried and failed to save him from himself. From Dieppe to Naples to Paris, Oscar is a penniless vagabond, shunned by his old acquaintances, but revered by a strange group of outlaws to whom he tells the old stories – his incomparable talent still sharp.
