Cloud 9


She didn't ask for it. It just happened. There were stealing glances, attraction. But this was never supposed to happen.

Inge is in her mid-60s. She has been married for 30 years and loves her husband. But Inge is drawn to this older man Karl, already 76. It's passion. It's sex. She suddenly feels like a young girl again ...
