In this sensitively executed French drama, a young woman befriends a young Down's Syndrome patient and finds his companionship preferable to that of her serious lover the painter. Vero is the lively girlfriend of Alex, an artist who dwells in a remote country manse. He is frustrated with his work and is just finished burning his most recent paintings when Vero arrives. Vero meets 24-year old Leo who is mentally retarded. Leo is supposed to be spending the summer at a special camp, but he keeps sneaking away. Leo begins hanging around the ever-grouchy Alex after Alex sends Vero away so he can create. It is Leo who helps Alex overcome his block.
