For years, Judith expected Gabriel to retire. He finally does. A party is thrown but while dancing in front of amazed guests Gabriel has a heart attack. He rapidly gets better. But his behavior is getting strange. He often goes away without a word. Judith soon discovers that he isolates himself to prey. Since he had a brush with death he suffers a mystic crisis. Rapidly it is getting bigger: he wants to leave his wife to take holy orders. Judith is utterly atheist. For her religion is something unknown that became a challenger. She is going to fight back for Gabriel. They will be forced to look to the very end of their selves to see if a life together still makes sense.
