Synopsis

Love story of a couple who feel compelled by the moral climate of the early 1900s to let practical considerations stand in the way of their passion. When young diplomat George Darrow crosses paths with Anna Leath, an old friend who has recently become widowed, the two realize they have feelings for each other. They plan a weekend at Anna's home in France, but as George's train is pulling out of the London station en route to Paris, he receives a telegram from Anna cancelling the weekend. Unsettled by Anna's reluctance, George begins an affair with Sophy Viner. After the affair is over, Anna summons him again to France. Upon his arrival, George is stunned to discover that Sophy is Anna's new nanny and engaged to Anna's stepson.
