After World War II, Germany was a mess. Thousands lived in the rubble, and it was time to rebuild. English Colonel Lewis Morgan (Jason Clarke) was brought over to help rebuild, so he was stationed in a house. Lewis couldn’t go home, so his wife Rachel (Keira Knightley) came to stay, even though she was devastated by their son’s death. Owner of the home they were staying in Stefan Lubert (Alexander Skarsgård) returned, and Lewis suggests they should live together.
This ends up being a mistake and after Lewis was sent away, Rachel and Stefan stayed. Things start to get romantic and the aftermath of the war turned into the aftermath of the relations, but will she stay with her husband, or with the new love that was once the enemy?
