Is an affair justifiable if a marriage is unhappy? Can one condemn infidelity wholesale? Is fidelity merely a matter of discretion? A stylish black-and-white drama unfolds when a married man and his lover get into an accident; she dies, he survives but just barely. His wife takes care of him knowing full well he's been unfaithful. A refreshingly unprejudiced, curious look at a universal issue.
