Nazi Germany occupies France. The writer Robert Antelme, a major figure in the French Resistance, is arrested and sent to the camps. His young wife, Marguerite, a writer and member of the Resistance herself, is torn between anxiety at not knowing her husband's fate and a secret liaison. Suffering with the unbearable pain of waiting, Marguerite develops a chilling relationship with local Vichy collaborator. Emmanuel Finkiel, whose grandparents were deported in 1942, adapts the novel by Marguerite Duras and touches with great sensitivity on love, memories and pain.
