Gaetano and Delia meet for dinner to discuss how they’ll handle their children’s holidays. The meal immediately becomes a wide reflection of the past 10 years’ experiences that led the separated couple to this point. Throughout several flashbacks, we see the two recount their past, good times and bad. We witness the early days of their evolving relationship, from conversation to passionate love. As they continue talking, the decay of their relationship becomes evident: Gaetano turns into an uncaring father and an insensitive and rude husband. A heated exchange morphs into an honest reflection of true past love, which fell victim to the effects of time, selfishness, and insecurity, but was rooted in the best of intentions. It’s clear for the first time, now, that these two were truly in love. Even though they are still trying to start new lives, the wounds are still fresh. Delia and Gaetano may leave each once again. But will this time be for good or will they finally realize that their differences are the dusk before dawn?
