Theodora and Gabriel, spend their last hours together before Theodora leaves to the desert . Throughout their lives they have always been together, never apart for such a long time. The tension grows between them as the day passes by; they play games, but their actions are tinged with sadness as the moment of parting approaches. Throughout this they must come to accept each other's loss, and grow into their future selves.
