A park bench can hold a lifetime of memories, and for Arthur Robinson, one bench does. We see Arthur's connection to this park bench in three different decades of the 20th century. Firstly, him and his two closest friends in the 1940s during their time in the armed forces. Then, Arthur meets his teenage sweetheart, Esme Dering, but he is not the only one who falls for her. We fast forward to the 1970s, where Arthur bumps into a married Esme. Finally, we see him in the 1990s, attempting to reconnect with his son Christopher.
