An eight-hour miniseries based on Alexandra Ripley's novel, "Scarlett," the sequel to "Gone With the Wind." Scarlett O'Hara travels to Ireland to be with family and escape the confusion of her rocky marriage to Rhett Butler.
Separated from Scarlett and seeking a divorce, Rhett is now pursued passionately by his wife, who seeks a reconciliation. Frustrated in her efforts and unwilling to win Rhett by telling him that she is pregnant with their child, Scarlett leaves on a journey from Atlanta to Charleston and Savannah, to London, and then to her ancestral home of Ballyhara in Ireland, where she is caught up in the upheavals of the day. In England, she subsequently stands trial for a murder that she did not commit. In a dramatic climax, Rhett rushes to Scarlett's side, knowing that she needs him and that her life is at stake. Helping to win her acquittal and finally apprised that they have a son, Rhett reunited with Scarlett, conceding that he never stopped loving her.
