On the eve of his 90th birthday, life is hanging by a thread for Antoine as he anticipates the visit of his daughter who is on a journey in South America. His wife of 65 years, Viviane, also suffering from the aches of old age, endures an excruciating double sentencing: dealing with her daughter’s tragic death, and concealing this unbearable truth from her husband - a truth that would inevitably end the last beats of his fragile heart.
