Past and present are intertwined in the life of a writer as his ghost looks back and revisits scenes from his childhood and youth. He relives past love affairs and reviews his successes and failures. As he watches the destinies of old friends and lovers now inexorably unfolding beyond his control, he takes a fresh look at the part he played in their lives.
