So how much I actually loved you?
This latest -- and typical -- Thomas Hardy family drama to come to the screen is set in the Klondike, around the time of the gold rush. Through flashbacks, we learn that about twenty years previously, an unsuccessful gold digger had traded his wife and new-born daughter to another miner who had gold -- and a good claim -- but needed a woman more. Skip to the present, where wife and daughter arrive back in town to look up daddy, who is now King of the town and exceedingly wealthy. At the same time, the railroad engineers are in town, plotting the course of the coming railroad. Various romances and revelations ensue, as the broken family tries to reconcile while hiding the truth of what happened from the daughter.
