Pierre (Nicholas Silberg) is a garage mechanic in his mid-30s with a considerable yen for the ladies. It comes as something of a surprise even to him, though, when he falls passionately in love/lust with Jeanne (Helen Surgere), a much older woman in her 50s. She is unmoved by his advances, but despite her sharp rebuffs, he moons over her and hangs on every phone call, expecting it to be from her. Her heart thaws when she learns she is suffering from an incurable and fatal disease, and she is not sorry.
