An old man looks back on his life and remembers Elizabeth - the only woman he ever loved. The two of them had shared their childhood, shared their summer holidays, hunts for strawberries in the forest, family picnics...Yet somehow all had been lost, and the joy, excitement and hope slowly replaced by the melancholy resignation and inertia that comes from broken dreams. Now at the end of his life, all he is left with is the knowledge of what might have been.
