Aurore (Agnès Jaoui), recently separated from her husband, is a soon-to-be grandmother who quits her waitressing job after the business is sold to an incompetent new manager – and to top it all off she’s going through menopause. She’s overwhelmed with the changes and feels like she’s being pushed aside, so when she runs into her first great love (de Montalembert) she decides to start over.
Actor-turned-director Blandine Lenoir provides a hilarious and joyous ode to the female experience, to mothers, daughters, friends and lovers.
