After serving for Britain in the American War of Independence, Captain Ross Poldark returns to Cornwall, England in 1783 to discover his home and personal life in great turmoil.

With his farther past away, his land barren and the love of his life now in the arms of another man, Ross must somehow work to piece his broken world back together.
