In post WWII Germany, Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives at the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter. She is reunited with her husband Lewis (Jason Clarke), a British colonel charged with rebuilding this shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is astonished to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision - they will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower (Alexander Skarsgård) and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, with the tragedies of war still fresh, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.
