An accidental meeting in a snow-locked airport reunites former lovers Angie and Nathaniel. Ten years have passed since their parting. In that time Angie has remained in Ireland, marrying and having children, staying faithful to her profession as a teacher. Nathaniel, meanwhile, has patched together a life in Berlin, where he currently lives with his girlfriend, a young economist.
The couple revisit a festive night ten years before, a birthday dinner with his parents, when with corks popping and cuff links glittering, the family’s ravaged past pulled up a seat at the table, destroying their future.
