This filmed version of Eric Blau and Mort Schuman's experimental musical play, based around the songs of Belgian-born songwriter Jacques Brel, was produced as part of the American Film Theatre series. The three central characters, played by Elly Stone, Mort Shuman and Joe Masiell, find themselves caught in each other's company when they shelter from a rainstorm, and express their human emotions and experiences through songs including 'Marathon', 'Alone', 'Mathilde' and 'I Loved'.
