On the day of her 41st birthday Bunty Felse is overcome with depression; the weather is dreary, her only child Dominic fails to call or write home with birthday greetings, and her husband, George, arrives home only to announce he's on his way to London for a few days on urgent police business. After almost 20 years as a policeman's wife, Bunty doesn't even consider making him feel guilty or trying to get him to stay at home with her. She sends him off with a swiftly packed case and goes for a long and solitary evening walk. To shake off her black mood she ends up at the local pub, and accepts a lift home from a morose young man whose sadness draws her out of her own troubles and makes her want to help him. Until she finds out the reason this young man is so sure his life is over and that it may mean Bunty's life is over, too...
