By Aleksei Arbuzov, adapted by Jonathan Holloway from a translation by Ariadne Nicolaeff.
The Gulf of Riga, August 1968.
Lydia is an eccentric new patient at the sanatorium where Rodion is medical head.
Neither of them are youthful.
They have both suffered in life and have very different characters, but something draws them to each other and a rapport is built beyond the doctor-patient relationship.
When her stay is about to end, will Lydia leave him for Moscow?
