A train, travelling gently through the rolling hills of the Italian countryside, explodes. In one carriage, there are four survivors: "The General" (Ronnie Barker), an elderly English gentleman, Werner (Benno Furmann), a young German, Aimee (Emmy Clarke), an orphaned eight-year old girl, and Emily Delahunty (Maggie Smith), an English novelist who invites them to her home to recuperate. Thrown together by misfortune, they find themselves attempting to rework the torn fabric of their lives, while a concerned police inspector attempts to piece together the events that brought them there. When Aimee's straightlaced American uncle arrives to take her away, it shakes an already delicate household to the core. Will the magic of Emily's house in Umbria bring happiness to all? Or will happiness prove as elusive as the answers to the questions that bind them together? "The talent of Dame Maggie Smith and the beauty of the Italian countryside work an enchanting spell." - Houston Chronicle. Based on the novel by William Trevor.
