Rate this:
43-year-old Ria is used to being alone. All her life, she has struggled to form a meaningful relationship with any man. Her existence is a solitary one - until she discovers the swimmer. It is midnight when she first sees him, across the river. His name is Ben and he is a Sri Lankan doctor, awaiting a decision from the Home Office on his asylum application. He is also 18 years Ria's junior but despite this, their friendship steadily grows. At first, she resists anything more than his companionship, but in the long summer days that follow they are irresistibly drawn to each other. Then tragedy strikes, and in an act of violence Ria's life is changed forever.
