Fifteen-year-old Michael begins a love affair with 38-year-old Hanna in 1958 West Germany. As part of their relationship, Michael reads aloud from classic works of philosophy and literature. Hanna disappears suddenly, leaving Michael unsettled and confused. Seven years later, they meet again: he, a law student; she, standing trial for Nazi war crimes.
