When Michael (Victor Slezak) and Carolyn (Annie Corley) return to their childhood Iowa farmhouse for the settlement of their mother Francesca's estate, they are struck by the strange request to have her body cremated and the ashes scattered off the nearby Roseman Covered Bridge. The answer lay in the series of diaries Francesca left that detail the 4-day affair with photographer Robert Kincaid.

In 1965 while her husband and two children are away at the Illinois State Fair, Italian war bride, Francesca (Meryl Streep), is visited by National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid (Clint Eastwood), who is doing a photo-feature on the beautiful covered bridges in Madison. They both find love at the most unlikely of times, and in the most unlikely of places, and as her children reading her words move past their initial shock of their mother's infidelity, they realize that she was capable of such awe-inspiring passion, and yet gave it all up for the biggest love of her life- them...
