The young man seated on the bench reads his paper and chats with his wife about domestic matters and their daughter. As the conversation becomes more strained and personal, we realize the bench is in the courtyard of an institution where the young wife is an inmate, and the husband a visitor. He pleads with her to abandon the dream that their baby girl is still alive and playing in the yard, but she stubbornly clings to her own view of reality. Warm, compassionate, and powerful.
