Synopsis

Drama. During the American Civil War, Confederate soldier W.P. Inman is wounded in battle. He leaves his sick bed to walk the vast distance back to his beloved, Ada Monroe, at Cold Mountain. Ada is struggling, unable to work her own farm, until help arrives in the form of the practical Ruby Thewes. As Inman copes with unexpected encounters on his way home, and as Ada and Ruby try to maintain a sense of justice in the increasingly brutal town, the lovers wonder whether they will ever meet again, and if they do, whether the years will have altered them too much.
