In Victorian England, young aristocrat Dorian Gray (Shane Briant) meets Sir Harry Wotton (Nigel Davenport) and is introduced to London's society circuit and a decadent world of self-indulgence. Dorian sinks further into a cruel, hedonistic existence as Sir Harry's unscrupulous influence over him grows. While Dorian's appearance remains youthful, he discovers that his portrait ages and takes on hideous features reflecting his sinful ways. Ultimately, Dorian realizes that he has lost possession of his soul.
Nigel Davenport stars in this modern version of Oscar Wilde's 1891 novel about a man who remains eternally young while a portrait of him ages and becomes hideously ugly.
