The dramatic adaption drew on the tale of a boy, Heathcliff, rescued from the streets who caused chaos in one family’s eventful lives.

With a strong and passionate bond with Cathy Earnshaw, Heathcliff claimed a treacherous obsession with his teenage sweetheart that spiraled out of control until in the estate of Wuthering Heights.
