France 1870: Napoleon III has just lost the war against Prussia and left the country in poverty. Young Jeanne falls in love with photographer Francis, who soon takes her with him when he imigrates to America. In a small western town they build a photography shop. Meanwhile a veterinarian, David lives on a small farm together with his unhappy wife. It takes years and two tragedies to unite Jeanne and David. She has already decided to return to France as soon as possible, but then silently and carefully they fall in love for the second time in their lives. Great cast but very artsy and overly long in the story telling.
