As an old lady, Lisette reflects on her marriage with Peter and on the desperation that was caused by the cruel war and the death of her son. Peter is now living opposite in her neighborhood, and they are watching themselves secretly but donít exchange any word.

Their common grandchild tries to mediate between the two. Peter remembers an old porcelain figure, he once gave to Lisette as a gift in the night of their marriage. The porcelain figure got broken during a dispute with Lisette, but Peter collected the sherds and stowed them in his house. Now he tries to fix the figure in the hope to reconcile before he is dying.
