Description

Four seasons after her husband’s disappearance, Colette remains emotionally motionless, isolated in a country cottage, waiting for word, or perhaps even more significantly, a connection. A young stranger in a jean jacket waves to her from the frozen lake—a sign? She emerges to give him her husband’s parka—strangely, the boy has a likeness to Tom. A moving story of vanished love enlivened by Panych’s trademark humour. Cast of two women and three men.
