Dos hombres que de jovenes habian sido amigos inseparables se citan a cenar tras cuarenta anos sin verse. Todo converge en un duelo sin armas aunque tal vez mucho mas cruel cuyo punto en comun es el recuerdo imborrable de una mujer.
The General: Proud aristocrat from the Austrohungarian Empire. His mother was French and his father was Austrian. A proud soldier and hunter. His identity was not shaken after WW1 for he finds himself above the rest.
Konrad: General's childhood friend from Polish and Hungarian descent. After WW1 he finds himself without a home. Eventually flees to London and finally to Malaysia, escaping not only WW2 but the General's question. His humble origins made the general's father say "he was different" but he never meant it about his social status.
Krisztina: The general's wife. From humble Hungarian origins Krisztina had almost nothing in common with her husband. Even though she dies a few years after Konrad's departure she agonized next to her husband little by little since their wedding.
