|Synopsis||It is the first morning of Rodney’s retirement. Whilst he recalls a strange dream suggesting his own fascination with the RAF and WW2, his wife Monica, an assured, managing woman, announces plans, not just for the day ahead but for the rest of their lives. Rodney seems distanced from it all. Why?
The telephone rings. Monica answers. What she hears comes as a terrible shock, but only partly explains Rodney’s strange mood. The conversation that follows leaves Monica’s life in tatters.
