75 year old Germain finds a new focus in life when he joins a contemporary dance group.

75-year-old Germain (Francois Berleand) has a relaxed lifestyle many of us would envy.  That is until the day his wife dies very unexpectedly.  This sudden change to life gives Germain a new focus.  Firstly, to avoid all the family and neighbours who are overwhelming him with support and secondly, to take his wife’s place in a contemporary dance group without his relatives knowing.
