Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
While listening to the existential poetry of an elderly philosopher, a middle-aged teacher experiences an epiphany that leads him to abandon his work and his ever-patient girlfriend, who has not told him that she carries his baby, to follow the old man about. After absorbing many of his elder mentor's nihilistic beliefs, the teacher abandons his lover in favor of a beautiful, intelligent priest's daughter. Together, they embark upon a relationship fraught with decadence and debauchery that only leads them to great misery.
