Arthur’s life changes in the space of just two days. A chance remark by his elderly mother makes him wonder if his father was really his father. He searches through his childhood memories, looking for clues. This isn’t the only part of his past that Arthur fails to understand fully. His relationship with his wife is tense, but he seems to be only half aware of the fact – and he doesn´t even pay much attention to that half.

Then there´s the memory that won´t allow him any peace: the worst thing he ever did. On Sunday, he goes to meet the woman he lived with twenty years earlier. And does he tell his wife? No, he doesn´t. But when he returns home he´s a changed man, a man with a quest; and his wife, he learns, is not the woman he´d thought she was.
