For recent retiree Caroline, a new life of freedom and opportunity lies before her: time to take care of her children, her husband, and most of all, to finally take care of herself. But while her peers at the local senior's club pass the time with ceramics and amateur theatre, she finds a new hobby of her own between the sheets with the centre's computer teacher Julien, a carefree ladies' man decades her junior. The couple set rules for their affair, but Caroline seems to like courting danger, taking her lover to places she knows they might be seen and telling lies to her husband that could easily be discovered. As Caroline finds herself in the midst of a second youth - taking a new lover, living new experiences, breaking the rules, not doing what's expected of her - will her retirement mark the beginning of the end for her marriage, or a new beginning?
