Martin is tired of teaching philosophy and is put out that his ex-wife is coping just fine without him. He initiates a highly-charged affair with the much younger Cecilia, confident that, as her intellectual superior, he can control the relationship’s balance of power. But upon learning that Cecilia is also seeing a man her own age, Martin’s desire becomes an uncontrollable obsession that threatens to consume him.
