The visit of an Elderly Friend to an Elderly Woman sparks the memory of the Friend’s first visit to the house when the Woman’s husband Asle left to brood on his boat in the fjord and never returned. Asle’s disappearance and the Woman’s petrifaction into a state of unfulfillable hope make this a double tragedy.

OLDER WOMAN: Forever immobilized and imprisoned by memories of the past.

OLDER FRIEND: Loyal, pragmatic, moves away from the city to be near her friend.

YOUNG WOMAN: The past version of OLDER WOMAN, in a marriage gradually reaching its end, anxiously awaits return of her husband, senses her impending doom.

ASLE: Her husband, unsatisfied, forever searching for something just outside his grasp, loves taking his boat out on the fjord, spends more time on the water than home with his wife.

YOUNG FRIEND: Caring and patient, an optimistic, down to earth, cheery disposition.

MAN: The YOUNG FRIEND's husband, helpful, gets things done.
