Marie Therese (Die Marschallin) has not seen her younger lover, Octavian, nor his young wife, Sophie, since she sent him away 10 years earlier fearing he would eventually leave her. She was 31, Octavian and Sophie were both 17. When they reunite, his unquenched love for her tempts her to resume her affair with him, but memory is overwhelmed by new and wholly unsuspected feelings.
