Young lovers from Cold Mountain, North Carolina struggle to survive during the American Civil War. War changes Inman's honorable excitement to enlist into defeated desertion, while it transforms Ada's inexperience with rural mountain life into fierce independence. Both encounter morally suspect Union soldiers as well as white southerners intent on furthering the war through harassing and torturing deserters and Union sympathizers.
