Synopsis

An old man remembers a woman who made a sensitive gesture many decades ago, when she stripped off her own clothing in order to cover the naked body of a dead girl who had drowned in a flooded river. Thanks to a radio program, he finds the woman, but doesn’t meet with her in the end – the audience hears only her recollections of the past event.
