"I am scared, that once this war is over, and I am sent home, that you won't be here. That you might be gone."

Violet and Leonard lie awake in the Hotel Regina.
Leonard is scared. Not about his impending departure. He's not even worried about the falling bombs. He's scared that when it's all over, she won't be waiting for him.
Violet wants Leonard to know how proud she is of him. She took him dancing. She's baked him a cake. She can't imagine a future without him.
But when that future is taken away, how long can you wait?

"One Day When We Were Young" details the lives of Violet and Leonard; lovers standing together on the edge of war, in 1942, 1963 and 2002.
