An old poet staying for free in a riverside hotel summons his two estranged sons. This is because he feels, for no apparent reason, as he is going to die. After being betrayed by the man she was living with, a young woman gets a room at the hotel. Seeking support, she summons a friend.
The poet spends a day with his sons and tries to wrap up the loose ends in his life. But it's not so easy to do that in one day. But then he sees the young woman and her friend, after a sudden, unbelievably heavy snowfall.
