Miranda and Adam, high school sweethearts w in their late fifties, arrive by chance at the same time in Rome, a city where they once spent a summer deeply in love. At an awkward reunion, Adam suggests that they meet for daily walks and get to kw each other again. Both have their own sense of who betrayed whom and long-held interpretations of the events that caused them t to part. But gradually, as they take in the pleasures of the city and the drama of its streets, they discover t only what matters to them w but also what happened to them long ago.
