A day which is different from any other--a thunderstorm in the middle of winter: Steini moves in with his girlfriend Jenny; Olli dates Babette for the first time; and Marie, happily married to Frank, remembers Jan, who vanished from her life so unexpectedly five years ago. The following night Marie writes a letter to her old love Jan. But like in all these past years she cannot find the right words, and so she carelessly throws the letter away. When Frank discovers her crumpled letter in the rubbish bin the next day, he is deeply moved by Marie's confession that she still loves Jan. Frank decides to send the letter to Jan without her knowledge. When Jan suddenly returns without warning, Frank and Marie are not the only ones confronted with a challenging period in their relationship. Everyone in this circle of friends is in some way forced to contemplate the question, what is more important to love, or to be loved.
