Taking online courses at Warwick University in order to obtain their Doctoral degrees in Psychology, a 40 year-old wife Lilia Sensilhart becomes attached to a 65 year-old John Wisemelgent, also married. The more they participate in online discussions, the more they realize they are falling in love. Thinking John cannot offer Lilia much, he is at war with himself, and he unexpectedly ceases his online communication with Lilia for thirty-three days. As a result, both are tortured until they finally meet at Jacksonville at their first Colloquium. Already on the second day, they discover that rather than participating in Warwick's colloquium, they should start a colloquium of their own. And even though they are prevented from connecting through their bodies, they know they will always be connected through their minds. They may not finish the colloquium of their own, yet they know they'll finish it in their dreams.
