Two parallel story lines follow the lives of a freshly divorced couple, Nora and Ismael. While Nora deals with a serious illness and then her father's death, Ismaël tries to escape a psychiatric ward where he was accidentally placed. Similar to Desplechin's other films, this conversation drama with subtle undertones of humor and irony is a meditation on the meaning of life and the nature of interpersonal relationships.
