He's 17, she's 15. 'Poetry alive' is how he described her to others and read Walt Whitman's poems just for her. But the summer is over... Ellie is forced to come home. He's 31, she's 29. He's gone through the war, she's engaged, but a new meeting changes their lives... He is 80, she is 78.

It is a story about a great feeling that will stay with you forever."
