This is an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's 1952 novella "The Price of Salt," which tells the story of a lesbian romance in the '50s written by Highsmith under the pseudonym Claire Morgan. The rather unprecedented homosexual love story--for the time in which it was written--follows the relationship between two very different women in 1950s New York, a 20-year-old girl working at a department store and a rich wife trapped in a bad marriage trying to break free.
