This gentle romantic comedy from France concerns Jean, a 35-year-old man still living with his mother in Corsica, and employed as a cook at their family-owned restaurant. To his dispair, his future is all mapped out and this is how it looks: it involves maintaining the business and remaining in the area. Life throws him a curve-ball, however, when a young woman named Nora accidentally falls into the ocean during a sailing race - and Jean spots her nearby. She captures his heart instantly, and soon, a new adventure beckons. The two embark on an unforgettable night that begins with a quiet, relaxing drive and ends with this enigmatic and seductive young woman leading Jean far from home.
