When love is rekindled between two divorced sixty-year olds, the consequences for the family are both radical and absurd.
After their forty-year old son suddenly dies, two divorced sixty-year olds see each other again after many years. In the months that follow they find comfort with each other and their old romance returns. They enjoy their innocent affair, which they try to keep a secret from the rest of the family. But this is more difficult than they expected because, like the rest of the family, they become suffocated by their newly found love.
