Savage Grace recounts the true crime tale of the death of Barbara Baekeland. Stephen Dillane stars as Brooks Baekeland, the son of the man who invented Bakelite, one of the early forms of plastic. As the family fortune begins to decrease after years of wealth, Brooks marries Barbara, who desires to mingle in the highest social circles. They have a child, Antony, who is homosexual. Antony grows up to kill Barbara, in part because Barbara takes a personal interest in “curing” her son of his orientation.
When Tony first begins to come to grips with his homosexuality he enjoys an affair with Jake, at times the two performing their sexual acts in front of “mummy”. Later he brings home a girlfriend, which surprises his parents since his homosexuality has become obvious. Both Barbara’s and Tony’s emotional stability soon begin to unravel. Barbara takes up with the bisexual Sam and, when Tony also finds himself attracted to Sam, all three end up in bed. Back in London, years later, after one of numerous suicide attempts, Barbara casually initiates a sexual relationship with her son leading to the film’s tragic conclusion.

When his world collides with Olivier, a French student he rescues from a pointless beating, he encounters a lifestyle that presents as many new experiences as it does obstacles.
