synopsis The two central characters, man and woman, both married to other partners, have spent a summer together.  Though aware of the transient character of holiday love affairs, they were afraid of the dangers and consequences which could be the outcome of this episode.  They made an agreement not to get emotionally involved, but find it very difficult to keep to their bargain and the parting is extremely hard.  The man particularly has been beaten at his own game as it were, for the woman remains true to the agreement and leaves him even though she is pregnant as a result of their short-lived affair.
