The film probes the intricate possibilities of love and madness and the shadows the past throws upon the present. Three people who formed a life-long bond in a concentration camp are re-united for the first time forty years later in the bucolic setting of a renovated farm.

Sarandon plays Melanie Lansing Winters, a beautiful woman in her 50's who balances her precarious emotional state with an innate sharp, deprecating wit. Byrne plays Christopher Lewis, a British novelist haunted by the survivor's eternal question - "Why was I saved?" Von Sydow plays Jakob Bronski, a heroic dissident and veteran of a Soviet psychiatric hospital; who loses and saves his family twice and David Winters, (Plummer) Melanie's husband, whose compulsive infidelity has left him with a marriage in tatters and an embittered son, Benjamin (Dupuis).
