River Separated Lovers in Plague City

I remember a what I think was a TV movie about two lovers in a medieval town/city that had a river surrounding it. This was probably in the late 90s, early, early aughts. English dialogue as far as I recall. An outbreak of the plague threatened the local population, but the river acted as a natural barrier, almost like a moat, and the towns people were forbidden to cross it for fear of contamination. I think one of the lovers lived outside of the city’s boundary, and they couldn’t bear to be apart, crossing the river and ultimately condemning the entire city to the plague. Does anyone else remember this, or am I the only one?
