The quiet happiness of Paul, an esteemed married neurosurgeon, is disturbed by constant deliveries of luxurious bouquets of roses to the hospital, his office and his home. Intrigued by their origin, the sexagenarian believes the sender might be Lou, a young woman in her twenties who thanked him for a successful surgery he’s sure he never performed. Paul keeps running into Lou, and as these supposedly accidental meetings increase, he develops a friendship with her. Suspecting infidelity, his wife Lucie is consoled by Alain, Paul’s associate and best friend.
