In a small German town after World War I, Anna mourns daily at the grave of her fiancé Frantz, killed in battle in France. One day a young Frenchman, Adrien, also lays flowers at the grave. His presence so soon after the German defeat ignites both tensions and passions.

Actress Paula Beer won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Newcomer at the festival for her role as the grieving Anna who becomes infatuated by the mysterious Adrien.
