Over close-ups of cutlery in drawers and drying racks, a short poem of the same name is read by the author. In it is a lament for a past not fully recognized and a tradition that escapes the reader's present situation... the longed for marriage groom which he will never be. Humorous and poignant at the same time, the past coincides in the present like a knife.
