Plot of the movie
Francesca (Meryl Streep) was married to Richard Johnson (Jim Haney) and lived with him on a lonely farm in Madison County, Iowa. After her death, her children Carolina and Michael discover that in her diary Francesca described her love affair with a certain photographer Robert Kincaid (Clint Eastwood).
The relationship lasted only four days and it all happened in the summer of 1965, while the husband and children were at a big fair. Kincaid wandered off in his little truck looking for Madison County bridges to photograph. He stopped in front of Francesca's house and she showed him the way.
Francesca used to be a teacher, but because of raising children, she left school and became a housewife whose dreams did not come true. Traveling around the world made a normal family life impossible for Robert. They became friends, and immediately fell in love with each other. It was the beginning of a love story that lasted only a few days and lived in their memories for more than 20 years. Circumstances will not allow them to continue the relationship. However, in the letter that Francesca wrote to her children in 1987, it is clear that the most important thing for her is that they understand how important that love was for her and that it was not just adultery.
