"Old Flame" weighs the force of an old romance against the strength of a 50-year marriage, examining our vulnerability to rediscovered passion, no matter what our age.
When Mike Ripley, Barbara Marchand’s bad-boy high-school boyfriend from half a century ago, surprises her with a phone call on their shared birthday, Barbara and Frank’s 50-year marriage is shaken. Carrying a torch for “Babs” all these years, Mike arrives from Florida with his much younger Serbian girlfriend, Leonora. Feeling the chill of mortality Mike wants a last look at his old flame. The two couples form an unlikely --and increasingly untenable-- friendship that causes them each to question who they are and what they want.
