An exploration of first love, intense passion and inspirational happiness which is one we perhaps all remember but try hard to forget.
Maddy is a forty something single woman, for her the first teenage love might have been forgotten but not buried altogether. In her job as a Marriage Registrar she sees a ghost, her first love Stefan a Dutch man who she hasn’t seen for more than 25 years. The sighting of him completely throws her off guard,
She recants how she met him, how short her relationship with Stefan was and recalls her feelings of first love, reactions and how devastated she it ended. She is persuaded into meeting him, and she recalls all the men in her life. She realizes that she has never fallen in love with any other man, other than Stefan. The story is told about their rekindled relationship in both England and Amsterdam, and about the difficulties of a long distance relationship.
They both realize over time that they need to live in one place permanently, because for them the first love did lead to being in love a second time around. Just proving that sometimes ‘first loves’ really do work
