The patient’s only recollection is that he is English and married. That’s it. David Caravaggio, a fellow Canadian in the Intelligence Service, shows up at the church, claiming to know the patient as a man who aided the Germans during World War II.

This man may not be fleeing his German captors, but rather the memories of an affair with married Katherine Clifton, his life’s passion, and an unfulfilled promise, as Caravaggio believes.
