In the summer of 1953, nightclub manageress Ruth Ellis met two men with whom her fate would be entwined. Lonely businessman Desmond Cussen lost his heart to Ruth whilst she lost hers to David Blakely, a racing-car driver with whom she spiraled into a violent, abusive romance. Set in the grubby glamour of Fifties London, Entanglement charts the final months in the lives of the trio as they move towards their destiny, and the single act that will secure Ruth Ellis a place in history. This is a timeless human tale of jealousy, desire, and the endurance of obsessive love.
