February 2008. Lisa and Mike are lounging on the grass in the sunshine. They’re spending the last day of their honeymoon at a “Jazz in the Park” concert in Christchurch.
Ten feet away a much older couple is sitting tangled together, totally focused on one another – gently stroking arms, gazing into eyes, soft kisses… the works.
Mike: “Awww, look at that. They’ve probably been married fifty years and they’re still so much in love. Don’t you think that’s just beautiful?”
Lisa: “I think that they might be having an affair. This is probably a secret, stolen, afternoon tryst in the park. Or maybe one of them has just been diagnosed with three months to live.”
Mike: “What exactly is wrong with you?”
