Overview

England zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts. Anne Elliot, sensibel, gebildet und feinsinnig, gilt mit 27 Jahren schon fast als "alte Jungfer“. Vor 8 Jahren hat sie auf Drängen ihrer Verwandten die Verlobung mit Frederick Wentworth gelöst, eine Entscheidung, die sie bis heute bedauert. Als ihre Familie durch die Verschwendungssucht ihres eitlen Vaters gezwungen ist, den Familiensitz aufzugeben, begegnet sie Wentworth wieder, der mittlerweile als Kapitän sein Glück gemacht hat. Doch Missverständnisse erschweren ihr Wiedersehen.

England at the beginning of the 19th century. Anne Elliot, sensitive, gentle and sophisticated, is, at 27 years of age, already considered an “old maid”. 8 years ago her family persuaded her to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth. A decision that she has regretted until this day. When her family is forced to give up their ancestral home due to the extravagance of her vain father, Anne's and Wentworth's paths cross again. Wentworth has made his own way as a Captain in the navy. But their meeting is overshadowed by misunderstandings.
