Beatrice (Polley) is intrigued and smitten by Henry (Fletcher), who is dying of cancer. With one day left before his surgery, which will likely be a death sentence, Henry finally allows her into his heart, and his bed.

But the surgery is a success, and Henry is cured. The two marry and 40 years later, the youthful and passionate love they once had has dwindled into almost nothing. While building their dream home in the country, Beatrice (Ladd) is diagnosed with cancer, and now Henry (McCann) must care for her. The event brings back memories of their first year together.
