Sex. Love. Life. Death. Ellen Rayleigh was married for three decades. The loving mother of four children, she watched her sons succeed and her daughters become self-sufficient. Her husband struggled to keep passionate flames blazing. Faced with losing love, he chose to relocate to the countryside. In a modest house with weathered barn they initiated a plan of marital recovery. They will reconstruct the old horse stables and reconstitute their passion in a journey of learning and love. A neighbor finds himself the focus of Ellen's interest. His acceptance of her affection brings him bliss. One fateful day while listening to music on a portable stereo in the sauna, while drinking bubbly, while expressing their intimate though illicit communication, the bucket of ice water falls to the floor. An electrical cord doused with water shorts the lovers' lives. The electrocution stuns both families. If only their love hadn't blossomed. If only someone could...stay the night.
