Gregory lives a contented life. His wife Eugenia doesn’t. After sixty years of marriage, 80-year-old Eugenia approaches her granddaughter Kathy, a lawyer, to help her divorce her husband, 85-year-old Gregory. Kathy is shocked by her grandmother’s decision, not to mention her obduracy and pertinacity. What must have happened in her grandparents’ relationship that decades could not have smoothed over? Having no desire to tear her beloved family apart, Kathy tries to get to the bottom of her grandmother’s decision. Although she uncovers her family’s dramatic history, her grandparents’ secret remains a mystery. Faced with the risk of losing her granddaughter and not wanting to pass the burden of ancient culpabilities on to the next generation, Eugenia conceals the truth and tries to come to terms with the past. And Gregory? Can Kathy protect him?
