Tom Courtenay reads this story in which a young woman falls to her death in the Alps.
Sixty years later, the man who accompanied her receives a letter. A body has been discovered. But what was the relationship of these two naïve teenagers? And how will memories of their flight from Nazi Germany affect this man’s relationship with his long suffering wife?
David Constantine's masterful story of unearthed memories was the inspiration behind the Oscar-nominated film 45 Years starring Tom Courtenay and Charlotte Rampling.
