Kate Mercer (Charlotte Rampling) is planning a party to celebrate her 45th wedding anniversary. One week before the celebration, a letter arrives for her husband Geoff (Tom Courtenay), which reawakens troubling and long-hidden memories.

As the party nears, Kate wonders if she truly has anything to celebrate.
