In a chance encounter in an Edwardian café, Vera meets her former lover. The couple’s ensuing conversation ranges widely from their shared memories to their lives since the split and explores the themes of lost love and regret, self-centeredness and missed connections, new experiences — and improbably, a dill pickle! Based on a short story by Katherine Mansfield.
