Le film commence en 1922 dans la région de Londres, au Royaume-Uni. Vita Sackville-West est une écrivaine britannique à succès et une femme émancipée qui fume, conduit, signe ses livres de son vrai nom et vit une relation ouverte avec son mari, le diplomate Harold Nicolson, lui-même discrètement bisexuel. Vita vient de lire Mr Dalloway, le dernier livre de Virginia Woolf, écrivaine qu'elle admire et souhaite rencontrer. Mais Vita est issue de l'aristocratie conservatrice, et tant sa mère que son mari se montrent méfiants vis-à-vis de Woolf, qui passe pour folle et fait partie d'un groupe d'écrivains socialistes à la réputation de bohêmes, le Bloomsbury Group, dont les œuvres n'ont à ce moment qu'une diffusion confidentielle. Vita est bisexuelle et, dans sa jeunesse, elle a frisé le scandale en s'enfuyant avec une de ses amoureuses, Violet Keppel. Sa mère, qui a étouffé l'affaire, intervient pour empêcher la parution de son futur livre et lui défend de rencontrer le Bloomsbury Group. Vita finit par se rendre à l'une de leurs soirées et rencontre Virginia : c'est un coup de foudre, non réciproque. Déterminée à mieux connaître Virginia Woolf, Vita entame avec elle une correspondance vivace et soutenue, dont le film utilise de nombreux extraits. Elle s'intéresse à la maison d'édition fondée par Virginia Woolf et son mari Leonard Woolf, Hogarth Press. Vita va jusqu'à lui soumettre et lui dédicacer son prochain livre, Seducers in Ecuador, ainsi que les suivants, qui sont des succès et améliorent les finances de la maison. Elle lie connaissance avec la sœur de Virginia, Vanessa Bell, qui est peintre et dont le mari, Clive Bell, est également peintre.

The gang of Ulysses Pick (Jason Patric) shoots its way into his former home, which the police have surrounded, with a hostage and a stuffed wolverine (named "Crispy") in tow. Big Ed, the gang's second-in-command, then evicts the dead gangsters (who seem otherwise alive), after asking them to identify themselves: "Those of you who have been killed, stand facing the wall." They leave reluctantly, and the gang waits for Ulysses. The film's narrator, the ghost of Ulysses's father-in-law Calypso/Camille (Louis Negin), reveals that the house is haunted (and not only by him) because although a house's happiness is able to vacate the premises after its inhabitants have left, its sorrow is doomed to remain inside forever. This house had once belonged to Ulysses and his four children with his wife Hyacinth (Isabella Rossellini).

En 200 000 ans d'existence, l'homme a rompu l'équilibre sur lequel la Terre vivait depuis 4 milliards d'années. Réchauffement climatique, épuisement des ressources, extinction des espèces : l'homme a mis en péril sa propre demeure. Mais il est trop tard pour être pessimiste : il reste à peine dix ans à l'humanité pour inverser la tendance, prendre conscience de son exploitation démesurée des richesses de la Terre, et changer son mode de consommation.
