Dance With A Stranger is a moving insight into a tragic "Crime of Passion" that changed the conscience of a nation. It is the story of one woman and two lovers - each driven by the all-powerful forces of sexuality.

Ruth Ellis (Miranda Richardson), a glamorous nightclub hostess and mother of two children, embarks on a tempestuous affair with a handsome racing driver David Blakely, played by Rupert Everett.

A series of tragic consequences culminate in the execution of Ellis in 1995 - an execution that led to a tidal wave of emotion and the abolition of capital punishment. This is a film that does more than chronicle a series of events; it captures perfectly the mood of a post-war nation., Dance With A Stranger is a moving insight into a tragic "Crime of Passion" that changed the conscience of a nation.
