Episode from the thir­teen-part NOS tele­vi­sion series A Gallery, written by Paul Feld. An elderly Indo woman and her husband, who fought in the Dutch East Indies, have not been able to tolerate each other’s company since World War II. The horrors she faced in concen­tra­tion camps greatly influ­enced her marriage. They lived for 45 years in one house, but strictly sepa­rated. After his death, the woman starts caressing her husband inti­mately, not hindered by the smell or the count­less flies. Only now does it become clear just how much she loved him and her long lost love is finally released.
