Emily Brontë wrote the classic Wuthering Heights and is one of the most famous and mysterious authors of all time. The film Emily tells the story about her short life. The author didn't live for more than thirty years old, but still managed to make a big impression at a time when women were expected to be low-key. Beneath the surface there is a great longing for freedom and when Emily falls in love with the vicar assistant William, she explores forbidden physical passion. But when Emily's siblings and others close to her are frightened by her uncontrollable personality, she herself becomes more and more afraid of continuing to be stuck in a female role that she cannot stand for.
