Synopsis by Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez
Set in postwar Germany, Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives to the war-ravaged city of Hamburg during a tough winter to meet with her husband and British colonel Lewis (Jason Clarke). As Lewis is tasked with rebuilding this derelict city, Rachel learns that they will now be living with the previous owners of the house, German widower Stefan (Alexander Skarsgård) and his anguished young daughter. Caught between loyalty and temptation, Rachael finds herself drawn towards the quiet intensity of Stefan, but will she succumb? Directed by James Kent.
