A moment in the lives of two people in a hospital room.
One of them, an elderly woman, is dying.
The other, a much younger man, is watching over her.
Memories of a long ago love haunt the woman and rise up from her
consciousness like filigrees of light.
The young man questions life, death and love as he sits next to her.
Includes a stunning vocal performance by singer Karen Young.
