James Ivory directs this period drama, starring Ralph Fiennes. In 1930s Shaghai, Sofia (Natasha Richardson) a peniless Russian countess displaced by the revolution and civil war, is forced to take work as a taxi-dancer and bar girl in order to support herself. There she meets blind diplomat Todd Jackson (Fiennes), who opens a sophisticated bar called 'The White Countess' and asks her to work for him. As their strange and hesitant relationship progresses, they find themselves torn apart by the Japanese invasion of the city.
