A woman in her early forties has to choose between her faithful but boring husband and her younger lover, who deludes her with an exciting future.

A man and a woman sit silently at a dining table far from each other, when another man unexpectedly comes in – her lover, it turns out. He is invited to join dinner, but this soon erupts in a verbal fight full of caustic remarks. In this tragicomedy with slightly absurdist dialogues, the woman must choose between the two men: her faithful but boring husband or her younger lover, who deludes her with an exciting future: "If you really want to live, come with me now." Will she dare to take a leap into the dark?
