A young Jewish violinist from Holland falls hopelessly in love with an Irish painter called Gael. She leaves her aristocratic husband in Paris, marries Gael and moves to Ireland, where they have one son. But her refined upper-class background hasn't prepared her for the poverty of life with Gael, nor for his brutish behaviour. She also encounters anti-Semitic sentiments in Ireland, and struggles to reconcile this with her past, and that of her parents in particular, who are Holocaust survivors. Her desperate attempts to maintain a semblance of normal family life while still pursuing her career become more and more impossible as Gael grows increasingly delusional and violent. This is at once a moving love story and a brutal portrayal of a destructive marriage that comes to a devastating end.
