In the heart of the historical drama there is Ross Poldark, who has just come back from the war. He saw a lot of blood and pain on the battlefield, so that when he returned home, Ross hoped that the family hearth would help him get rid of the nightmarish visions of the past. But when he arrived in his native Cornwall, he was horrified by what he saw and learned. The main character's father died, and almost completely destroyed house which he had loved since childhood was run by a couple of drunks-servants. Being unable to bear such a view, Ross rushed to his beloved Elizabeth, who had to wait for his return. But here bad news waited for the hero, his bride, as it turned out to be ex one, was now engaged to his cousin. Nothing else made sense for Poldark, because he was left completely alone in the world, which, it seemed, changed completely during the time he spent on the war. It was very difficult for Ross to accept the real order of things, but eventually he would do it. Now his main task is to return the former look of his parental house and to learn to live in this, as yet alien world. And who knows, maybe fate will give one more chance to find true love...
