In a heroic journey of epic proportions, English everyman Charlie McFell (Lloyd Owen) wrestles with his demons -- including a coldhearted wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones), economic hardship, the horror of the world's first Great War and a painful secret he'd rather forget. But Charlie eventually comes out on top in this emotional, made-for-television miniseries based on Catherine Cookson's best-selling novel.
