Mattias was searching for a friend, while Samuel was longing for his big love, a young sailor on the edge of manhood. Samuel’s funeral leads Mattias back to an unanswered question. Why did he dedicate his life to a stamp collection instead of really living it? Finally an old letter of the passed away friend resolves a well kept secret ...
