Fledgling writer Briony Tallis, as a thirteen-year-old, irrevocably changes the course of several lives when she accuses her older sister's lover of a crime he did not commit.
Filming of the film's three sections was done almost entirely in sequence.
Briony Tallis, aged 13:

When Robbie gives Briony the letter for her sister, she arrives at the fence with the hem of her collar down. In the next shot, her collar is up. In the next shot, it's down again.
The title types itself out like on a typewriter.
