Hannah (Winslet) has a passionate summer affair with a young neighbor named Michael (Fiennes and Kross), but then disappears.  She resurfaces years later as one of the defendants in a war crimes trial stemming from her actions as a World War II concentration camp guard.  Michael alone realizes that he has information that can set her free, and must decide whether or not to save her.
