Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders star in this romantic drama co-written and directed by Roberto Rossellini. Wealthy English couple Katherine Joyce (Bergman) and her husband Alex (Sanders) travel to Italy to sell a villa they have inherited. Far from their London home, Katherine confesses to having had a secret lover and finds her husband becomes even more distant with her; to such an extent that they decide to finish their holiday apart. Whilst Alex enjoys the company of other expatriates on the island of Capri, Katherine tours around the sights of Naples and Pompeii. However, the different events they experience begin to bring the couple back together.
