Taylor met Burton on the set of the film, and, though they were both married at the time, they began a scandalous love affair. Their turbulent romance would lead to marriage, then divorce, then remarriage and divorce once again.

The film will focus on Taylor and Burton's fiery romance and will show Taylor over several decades, as evidenced by this picture of Lohan as Liz in her later years.
