Their tragedy was to fall in love.

As timeless as young love and as tragic as Romeo & Juliet,Solomon & Gaenor is a lush Oscar-nominated romance featuring star-crossed lovers caught in a cultural crossfire.

Wales in 1911 is a beautiful world, but fraught with racial and economic unrest.Solomon is young, handsome and Jewish, selling linens door-to-door in a nearby mining village.There he falls for Gaenor, the daughter of a strict chapel-going family, and decides to conceal his heritage in order to win her heart.Passion blossoms, with hope and happiness achingly near, until Solomon's secret is revealed.Now the lovers are forced to separate forever by their families, their faiths and a tragic twist of fate.
