Based on the play The Time of the Cuckoo by Arthur Laurents

Do I Hear a Waltz?

Leona, an unmarried American secretary 'of a certain age,' goes on a vacation to Venice where, under the spell of that enchanted city, she falls in love. The gentleman is an attractive, middle-aged shopkeeper, whose attentions give flight to her deepest dreams of romance. Too soon, however, he openly informs her that he is a contented family man, and Leona's hopes are dashed. She can, for a short time, harness romance, yet realizes that such a relationship would have nowhere to go. Still, might it be better than never having loved at all? This timeless story, which is the basis of the movie 'Summertime' starring Katharine Hepburn, remains a bittersweet testament to the complexities of the heart.
