In a time where the concept of divorce does not exist, much less imagined possible, we find Marilou, a planetarium guide who decides to pursue an affair with Emil, a college teacher separated from his wife. They seem perfect for each other, and soon decide to move-in together.
Their once happy affair turns sour as Marilou discovers the real Emil – a charismatic, domineering, and emotionally abusive man who dictates everything to her: from how she should act and manage her life to the most inconsequential details of running the house. They soom find themselves in an on-again, off-again relationship, with Marilou going as far as laying a let’s-meet-only-three-times-a-week rule to protect herself.
The arrangement is fine until Emil gets sick and need Marilou by his side more than ever. Will her love for Emil see past all of his shortcomings, or will she move on with her life and continue to protect herself? Only the strength of their relationship can answer this.
