Isabelle is suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. Although she is in her 60s she sees her husband Daniel as he was when he was a young man about to head off to war. During the course of their exchange we witness the delightful coyness of their courtship as well as the fear and uncertainty arising out of war. Ultimately the play is about finding light in dark places and how love can both transcend and restore memories.
