In the isolation of her home in Brittany, she relishes in the memories of her glorious past: the defining parts and roles, the love of her life….

But their initial intimacy is troubled by jealousy and incomprehension. In his quest for stability, Abdul does not understand Julia’s need for a new lover. The confrontation between the two men tolls the bell for this enchanted interlude.
