After a chance meeting on a train platform, a married doctor and suburban housewife begin a muted but passionate, and ultimately doomed, love affair.

With its evocatively fog-enshrouded setting, swooning Rachmaninoff score, and pair of remarkable performances. this film deftly explores the thrill, pain, and tenderness of an illicit romance.


The 2022 SummerScape season is made possible in part by the generous support of Jeanne Donovan Fisher, the Martin and Toni Sosnoff Foundation, the Advisory Boards of the Fisher Center at Bard and Bard Music Festival, and Fisher Center and Bard Music Festival members. The 2022 Bard Music Festival has received funding from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.
