When Estelle moves out of her home, after Benedict’s reluctance to accept her childless fate, he is devastated. Benedict vows to win Estelle back – but he does not know how. One rainy night, after a disappointment with Estelle, Benedict is alone in his house. Thinking his wife has returned to his doorstep.
