December 25th, 2015


Kate and Geoff Mercer are a Norfolk couple who are planning to celebrate their 45th anniversary with a party amongst friends. But then a letter arrives for Geoff. The body of Katya, his first love, has been discovered, frozen and preserved in the icy glaciers of the Swiss Alps. Kate, knowing for a long time a little about Katya and Geoff’s story, continues to plan the expected celebration but Geoff's conduct begins to show that there is more on his mind than he says. By the time the party is upon them, five days later, there may not be a marriage left to celebrate.
