After four years, Lucy Harmon (Liv Tyler) returns to the artist's colony in Tuscany where her recently deceased mother was once the resident poet. Lucy is now a beautiful young woman, and although she has returned to learn more about the past (and find love as well), she does not anticipate the revelations and relationships that await her in the pastoral paradise. Jeremy Irons is memorable as the dying writer who takes an interest in Lucy.
