As a young woman, Anna married Henrik, an earnest theology student. She finds herself stifled by his emotional needs, but only realises the gravity of her mistake when she meets Tomas, a younger man. Their illicit love-affair makes her feel passionately alive, for the first time in years. But her happiness is also her torment. Caught between two very different worlds, she eventually turns to Jacob, both her priest and an old friend she can trust. Jacob gives Anna advice that leads to dramatic consequences.
