Peter, a 70 year old tailor has divorced his wife, left her the dress-making business that he had created from a small tailor shop and moved to an island to live the remaining period of his life reading. He spends most of his time sitting on a bench facing the sea reminiscing the past. His outside world is summed up in interactions with a cleaner and a coffee shop owner, until he meets a middle aged woman who owns a yacht and carries a parrot with her.

As Peter watches the sea growing old in its turmoil, moments lost mingle with moments gained…
