Eight stories, each a variation on the love-triangle. Whether in an elevator or a concert hall, in Paris or New York, there is a moment when the deadening monotony of a relationship is swept aside, the fog clears and a vision emerges of an alluring peak – almost within reach. From then on nothing is the same. Can the Gordian Knot of love, lust, conflict and morality be cut? Each story crackles with passion and intricate feelings.
