Anne Gauthier, who lives with her daughter Françoise in an upscale cottage, runs a small antique shop in the heart of a Norman village. Not far from there, Jean-Louis Duroc, who is suffering from a serious memory disorder, is spending his last days in a luxurious retirement home. Unexpectedly, his son Antoine goes to see Anne, to ask her to visit his father, who keeps talking about her and the brief but passionate bond they had 50 years earlier.
