A man and a woman meet by accident on a Sunday evening at their children’s boarding school, slowly finding out that they are both a widow/widower. They prefer revealing anything personal gently so that they could hide themselves with a misperception. They become close friends gradually, then she realises that her memory of her deceased husband is too strong for her to love anyone. As they go about their day, words are heard and told in action.
