Jean (Claude Rich) had a wife in the same way someone might have a dog and a house. In this French drama, Jean's wife (France Lambiotte) is upset to learn that her husband wants a divorce, and it is a tremendous struggle for her to learn to live on her own, get a job, and care for her high-spirited teenaged son. A curious thing happens, though, as she discovers that she is not a mere appendage to her husband, so that by the time Jean asks her to come back to him, she refuses.
