Anatomy of a Scandal follows the story of Sophie(Sienna Miller), the wife of parliamentarian James(Rupert Friend) who has been accused of sexual harassment. Now more than the extramarital sex, James has also been blamed for having raped his colleague, Olivia Lytton, and thus jumped himself into a political scandal.

The prosecution lawyer, Kate (Michelle Dockery)is certain that James is guilty.
