Synopsis

Aurore has separated from her husband, has lost her job and discovered that she is going to be a grandmother. Society is gently pushing her toward the exit, but when Aurore re-encounters the love of her youth by accident, she starts to resist, rejecting the scrapheap she seems destined for. What if a whole new life could begin right now?

Blandine Lenoir’s inspiring second feature film offers a story of rediscovery as Aurore struggles with the changes that inevitably come from getting older. Agnès Jaoui, who also co-wrote the film, gives a nuanced performance as Aurore. She brings a touching, truer-than-life poignancy to an endearing portrait of the resilience of womanhood, as an everyday heroine on the road to (re)discovery. This film will challenge our perceptions of what it means to live in a society that celebrates youth.
