A sentimental and romantic drama.
Writer Max Zorn travels to NYC for a week to publicize his latest
book and to do a reading at the New York Public Library. His wife
Clara arrived in NY a few months earlier to do an internship at a
publishing house to study e-booking. Max suspects she is having an
affair with one of the publishers. The story revolves around a
short, passionate love affair that Max had with a much younger woman
17 years ago. Rebecca is originally from East Germany and has been
living in NY for the past 20 years as a successful lawyer. The two
go on a second weekend to Montauk where the two contemplate a life
spent together that might have been.
