Two couples of different ages get involved with each other: The younger ones see the deadlocks of the older ones as a gloomy possibility, while the older ones are “renewed” but also immersed even deeper into their own deadlocks. Time does not go back, mistakes are not corrected, and relationships end up cannibalistic.
