Clara Goldstein is a lovely, middle-aged Jewish woman who, because of an impending visit from her American brother, is forced to create a contrived relationship with a man of her own faith. She places an ad in a personals column and meets Raul; a well-spoken, handsome and charming gentleman whom she soon discovers is a Gentile and does not fulfill her reason for placing the ad. Clara soon realizes she has no alternative and proceeds to instruct Raul with an intensive course in Judaism. Their journey is both humorous and captivating, but not one without pitfalls. Her brother's trip is canceled, but an unexpected, deeper relationship has already taken root. Clara is a woman comfortable with her own solitude. She hesitates before taking a romantic plunge. Initially demanding, she becomes more vulnerable as her feelings evolve. Raul brings warmth to the relationship, mixing gallantry with candid honesty. These are two mature people, risking one last chance at a meaningful relationship in the autumn of their lives.
