Elegant, retired architect Shauna (70) crosses paths with Pierre, a happily married doctor in his 40s, who first made an impression on her in a brief meeting 15 years previously.
Both are quite troubled to meet again and begin an affair. While Pierre’s family
life is soon turned upside down, Shauna struggles with feelings she thought belonged to the past.
This modern and nuanced drama where love defies society’s standards, starring iconic French actress Fanny Ardant, is Carine Tardieu’s fourth feature (Just To Be Sure, Cannes Director’s Fortnight 2017; The Dandelions).
