Plot Summary

Between Nîmes and Montpellier, a large, old, charming and dilapidated family home in the middle of the vineyards. This is where Ludovique (Frédérique Hébrard) spends the summer with Jean (Louis Velle), her husband, and her children. It's a real vacation, a lovers' vacation. They welcome friends, cousins, relations. Strangers also crash here. Ludovique smiles and feeds everyone. That's why she never stops shopping and cooking, tidying up, washing, cleaning, baby-sitting. One day, tiredness and an encounter with a hitchhiker make her drop everything. She settles for a few days, alone, in a pension in Grau-du-Roi, near a beach of her childhood. She wants to be sure that she exists, that she is something other than a toaster or a washing machine. But, after this elopement, Frédérique will choose to return to family life.
