In 1840, Sephardic Jew Rosina DaSilva (Minnie Driver) is forced to leave her London home after the murder of her father. Assuming the alias Mary Blackchurch, she finds employment on the Isle of Skye as governess to Clementina, daughter of Charles Cavendish (Tom Wilkinson) and his distant wife (Harriet Walter). Rosina assists Charles with his photographic experiments, and the two embark on a passionate affair. However, when Charles' son, Henry (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), returns home, he too becomes infatuated with Rosina, and discovers her true identity.
