Plot – A young lady who lives with her husband and their two children in a small town goes to the neighboring town every week on the same day to get things done and make visits. During one of these trips, she casually meets a young surgeon who practices in a nearby city. The two feel attracted to each other and, after spending a few hours together, agree to meet again the following week. Thus the two become friends and their friendship becomes a passion that threatens to ruin two lives and two families, since the doctor is also married. However, they are both pure souls that are repulsed by the idea of lying to their spouses and betraying their trust. Their conscience stops them just in time: the doctor decides to take a job in South Africa, where he will relocate with his family; she returns repentant to her husband, who loves her and whom she has never stopped loving.
