§ Synopsis “He is a very successful man, who, it would seem, has got everything he needs out of life: material well-being, a happy family, a prestigious contract with an American firm. She used to bewitch all the young men in the faculty, and was a remarkable artists’ muse under the name ‘Gala’, but today she is just a lonely woman. Then, when they were both young, there were some faint sparks of attraction between them which have now flared up unexpectedly and brightly. But during all the years they spent apart their lives filled up with all kinds of different things. And it is not so simple to ignore it all.”
