In a small German town in the wake of the First World War, Anna, a young woman mourning the death of her fiancé (Paula Beer, in a Venice award-winning performance), forms a bond with an unknown Frenchman (Pierre Niney) who has arrived to lay flowers on her beloved’s grave.
The arrival of this enigmatic Frenchman raises suspicions and ignites passions in Anna’s war-wounded home town, and as the mystery deepens, secrets long-buried in the past threaten to surface and change everything…
