English nurse Claire Randall and her husband take a second honeymoon to reconnect with one another in the Scottish Highlands in 1945 (they have been separated by 8 years of war). Claire is on a walk alone on an nearby hill when she walks through a cleft stone and is transported to 1743. She is saved from an evil English dragoon by a Highland clan, and befriends one of the Highlanders. What follows is a tale of adventure, espionage, romance, and a woman torn between fidelity and desire, and her torn conscience about returning to her own time and her newfound love in the 18th century.
