When a handsome stranger pulls into her driveway to ask for directions, Italian housewife Francesca’s life changes in an instant. After fleeing World War II-torn Europe with her American soldier husband, Francesca has built a quiet, unassuming life in rural Iowa. The unexpected arrival of National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid, who comes to Madison County while Francesca’s family is away at a county fair, forces an impossible choice. Which matters more: a once-in-a-lifetime love, or caring for family and community? With a lush, romantic score from modern musical theater master Jason Robert Brown, The Bridges of Madison County is a heartbreaking yet hopeful portrait of one woman, standing at a crossroads, without a map.
