In his late 60s, Peter has led a withdrawn and lonely life for a long time. One evening in an empty restaurant he goes with the young waitress into the deserted late-night kitchen - and sleeps with her. It takes a moment before Peter realises that this was the beginning of true love. Her name is Isabel, a 30 year-old, self-confident student. Yet Isabel marries a week later. In a sudden flash of awareness she leaves her wedding party and runs to Peter's flat in her wedding dress.
The bitter sweet romance between Peter and Isabel suffers a serious blow when Peter eventually meets her parents. For Isabel's mother is the very woman who caused Peter to flee into isolation 30 years ago. When the old lovers meet again, an avalanche is set in motion that buries the happiness of all involved ...
