Grace and Jimmy are a young couple with a small child, living in a high-rise apartment.
One morning, Grace notices that a young and beautiful couple in an apartment block on the other side of the courtyard are completely naked, making love.
At first, Grace is somewhat shocked and embarrassed, but the scene is mesmerizing, and the more she tries not to look, the more she finds that she is unable to turn away.
As the days (and nights) pass, it appears that the beautiful young couple do nothing but have sex.
With a small child on board, Grace and Jimmy’s own sex life has been put on ice, which means that Grace is less than pleased when Jimmy discovers what’s going on across the courtyard. She doesn’t want him drawing invidious comparisons or, for that matter, getting ideas.
After a while, however, the scene across the courtyard becomes a part of the daily ritual of their lives, as they lie in bed and stare through the window (their new ‘television’), positing theories as to who these youngsters are as they watch them in their endlessly creative lovemaking.
But then, one day, Paradise is lost.
They see the young man making love to another woman.
Grace feels she owes it to the man’s regular partner to let her know what’s going on, but she’s unable to find a way of doing so.
The young couple’s relationship resumes and, for a while, it seems that they have been able to get their act back on track.
The young woman becomes pregnant. The couple seem set for an idyllic future, but Grace can’t rid herself of an underlying sense of foreboding.
The dynamic of the relationship undergoes a complete transformation, as Grace is drawn deeper and deeper into the lives of these young strangers.
Or are they strangers?
Window is a startling exploration of the nature and meaning of human intimacy.
