Separation is a tale of two separations, first that of Pierre and Anne. The first sign appears at the theatre one evening, when she refuses to take his hand, but it is only the first. The other signs follow, leading up to a confession - she loves another man. They talk it through and try to set things straight, to save a love which has shredded away over the years. They go through wobbly reconciliations, scenes and crises before they finally see their affair is dead. Now it's time to face the second separation - that of parents and child.
