October 1944 in War Torn Italy, Hana (Juliette Binoche) a French-Canadian nurse working in a mobile army medical unit, feels like everything she loves in life dies on her, because of the difficulty travelling and the dangers, especially as the landscape is still heavily booby-trapped with mines, Hana volunteers to stay behind at a church to care solely for a dying semi-amnesiac patient, who is badly burned and disfigured. She agrees to catch up to the rest of the unit after he dies. All the patient remembers is that he is English and that he is married. Their solitude is disrupted with the arrival at the Church of fellow Canadian David Caravaggio (Willem Dafoe), part of the Intelligence Service, who is certain that he knows the patient as a man who cooperated with the Germans. Caravaggio believes that the patient`s memory is largely intact and that he is running away form his past, in part, or in its entirety.
