Though approaching his eighties, Max Kohn shows no signs of slowing down. He pursues his love life – both real and imagined – with youthful vigor, thereby risking his relationship to Reisel, the woman he loves but neglects. Based on the short stories “The Briefcase,” “Alone” and “Old Love” by Isaac Bashevis Singer, LOVE COMES LATELY is a film about real and imagined longings, the never ending dream of love and the power of fiction.
