Edna, a single mother for over forty years, is surprised by a vision one morning: a young Turkish gentleman whom she knew and loved briefly in the 1940s has now come back to her, across the distance of time. Ali, who may be a spirit but is more than real to Edna, spends time with her every morning, reminding her of the romance she had with him when she was known as Jane Martin, a young would-be model in New York and a jazz singer in San Francisco. That adventure, so long ago, was full of love and intrigue, politics and danger. She now remembers it clearly—both the romantic thrills and the heartbreak of separation. Fortunately for Edna and for Ali, they are now reunited and will always be so, even after Edna joins him on the 'other side.'
