Delphine Lehericey

Germain, an introspective retiree, abruptly becomes a widower at 75. He barely has the time to realize what has happened to him before his family forces their way into his daily life: non-stop phone calls and visits, meals and activities organized in advance – all meant to make his life as regular as clockwork. But Germain’s mind is elsewhere. Honouring a promise he made to his dear departed wife, he suddenly finds himself at the heart of a contemporary dance company’s newest work.
