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