Additional Info

Breaking up is hard to do, as the song goes, especially when two people seem to be meant for each other. Steve and Alice attempt to separate but always find themselves back together. Desperate to make their relationship work, they try marriage as the final solution. Ultimately, they do part, marry others, have children and build separate lives. And then one night they meet again.
