Plot synopsis
A lonely history teacher falls for an English teacher who was once his former student. Three days in the lives of the two, plus that of a literature instructor, are the subjects of this film that appeared at the 1969 Melbourne Film Festival. The history teacher deals with his wartime memories and takes care of his aging mother in addition to reaching out emotionally to the object of his affections.
