Young German woman Anna is mourning her fiancé Frantz, who was killed on the battlefield of the First World War.
She spends her time warding off unwanted advances from other would-be suitors and visiting Frantz’s grave, and it is here that she encounters Adrien, a Frenchman who says he is an old friend of Frantz.
While initially dubious of his story, Anna comes to see Adrien as the only other living connection to her beloved.
But Adrien is not telling the whole truth about his relationship with Frantz. A hypnotic tale of love, omission and remembrance.
