It is 1953, and America is still haunted by the war. Pearlie and Holland live quietly with their son in San Francisco, with a barkless dog in a vine-covered house. Apart from Holland's elderly aunts, the family have no regular visitors. That is until one day, a neat and elegantly dressed gentleman named Buzz appears at their door. "The Story of a Marriage" portrays three people trapped by the restrictions of their era, and reveals how we can never truly know the ones we love.
