In Colombia just after the Great War, an old man falls from a ladder; dying, he professes great love for his wife.

After the funeral, a man calls on the widow - she dismisses him angrily. Flash back more than 50 years to the day Florentino Ariza, a telegraph boy, falls in love with Fermina Daza, the daughter of a mule trader.

Ariza is persistent, writing her constantly. Her father tries to keep them apart, and then, one day, she sees this love as an illusion.

She's soon married to Urbino, a physician, and for years, Ariza carries a torch, finding solace in the beds of women but loving none. Are Ariza's hopes delusional?
