Synopsis The Piano Teacher started as a short story about Claire and Locket, an Englishwoman and a Chinese girl in WWII Hong Kong.

It's 1952 and 32-year-old Claire arrives in Hong Kong with her new (and dull) husband Martin. Using her marriage to escape a bitter mother and non-existent home life in England, Claire takes a position in Hong Kong as piano teacher to Locket, the daughter of wealthy socialite Chinese parents. She swiftly becomes intrigued by the family's unconventional English driver, the charismatic and enigmatic Will Truesdale...

Claire's love affair with Will is interwoven with events in the early 1940s in Hong Kong - and another, very passionate, and tragically doomed love affair, Japanese brutality and secrets betrayed.
