Set in Edwardian England where upper lips are always stiff and men from the Colonies are not entirely to be trusted.
Each Thursday, a man approaching middle age calls upon his father who is aged, caustic, nihilistic, and emotionally distant, perhaps from the loss of a son in the Boer War and his wife soon after.
On this day, the son suggests they attend a visiting guru's lecture on the transmigration of souls.
There they chat with a vicar and a soldier of fortune; dinner follows.
Over glasses of Hungarian Tokay, the vicar, Dean Spanley, tells a story of friendship, freedom, and reincarnation. In what earthly way could this tale connect father and son?
