The Immortalists

What would you do if you found out the day you're going to die?

A Separation

A man and woman separate, and agree to keep the separation private until they figure out what they're doing. The man travels to Greece on research; the woman moves in with someone new. The man's mother calls the woman about the man: has she heard from him? Could she go to Greece and find him? The woman goes to Greece, intending to find him and ask for a divorce.
