Libby Meredith never knew real love. Until she experienced a once-in-a-lifetime romance that may haunt her forever! Anthony Quinn and Ingrid Bergman are unforgettable as lovers caught up in a passionate affair in the Great Smoky Mountains. While visiting Tennessee with her law professor husband (Fritz Weaver), Libby (Bergman) finds herself drawn irresistibly to a mountain-born handyman, Will Cade (Quinn). The opposite of her intellectual husband, Cade believes that love is the cure for all life’s ills, and sets out to prove it to the repressed Libby. She must decide whether to stay with her unfulfilling marriage – Or give it up for her earthy lover.
