    • Synopsis
    • The modern day. Over fifty years after Irene Nemirovsky’s death in a concentration camp, her daughter musters the courage to read her lost manuscript, and discovers an incredible story...
      France, 1940. In the first days of occupation, beautiful Lucile Angellier is trapped in a stifled existence with her controlling mother-in-law as they both await news of her husband: a prisoner of war. Parisian refugees start to pour into their small town, soon followed by a regiment of German soldiers who take up residence in the villagers’ own homes.
      Lucile initially tries to ignore Bruno, the handsome and refined German officer staying with them. But soon, a powerful love draws them together and leads them into the tragedy of war.
