Guy's son David doesn't know what really happened. The years pass, David starts a family of his own and brings up his children with all his love. But deep inside he is filled with a constant sadness. At a family celebration, he learns the background to his father's death and falls into a deep depression. Everyone knew except him. His daughter tries to support him and keep the family together.
