Cecil, a seventy year-old successful novelist living comfortably with his fussy old butler is contemplating marriage. The object of his affections, Evelyn, has just buried the man she married fifty years ago. Cecil and Evelyn once had a brief romance, but he never quite got around to proposing marriage and she, sensibly, then turned to a man who did. Now he wants to make up for that passed-up opportunity, without accepting the changes that time inevitably brings. She knows that you can’t go back, and that the path forward is not necessarily a simple straight one. There is, after all, a difference between life and living.
