Ten months after the untimely death of his beloved wife, 54-year-old Rudy is still not sure how to move on from the defining tragedy of his life. But his new job is helping. After being downsized from his finance position, Rudy began working as the piano player at Nordstrom. Sasha, the Hungarian men’s watch clerk who is finally divorcing her no-good husband, finds time to join him at the bench every now and then. Just when Rudy and Sasha’s relationship begins to deepen, the police come to the store with an update about Rudy’s wife’s death --- a coworker has confessed to her murder --- but Rudy’s actions are suspicious enough to warrant a second look at him, too.
