Two lovers engage in a passionate but thwarted romance in a modern adaptation of the classic novel. Cate and her adopted brother Heath grow up together and fall in love as they hit their teens. Her desire to leave the simple life conflicts with his wishes for them to stay at the Heights (their lighthouse home) together. It gets worse when her father dies, leaving everything to Cate’s awful older brother Hendrix, who hates Heath. Cate ends up marrying the wealthy Edward, while the bitter Heath becomes a rock star and exacts revenge upon those who mistreated him. Once he and Cate start an affair, tragedy follows. Emily Bronte’s tale is set in modern-day California and features original tunes by pop maestro Jim Steinman, the brains behind the brawn of Meatloaf’s multi-platinum rock opera Bat out of Hell.
