Sophia, a 40-year-old philosophy professor, is in a stable if somewhat socially-conforming relationship with Xavier. From gallery openings to
endless dinner parties, ten years have already flown by.
Sylvain is a craftsman, renovating Sophia and Xavier’s new country house. When Sophia and Sylvain meet, Sophia’s world is turned upside down.
Opposites attract, but can they last ?

Cannes Un Certain Regard winner Monia Chokri (A Brother’s Love) returns with a fun and smart relationship study in the form of a romantic comedy, playing on the couple’s social differences and the contradictions of leftwing intellectuals.
