Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Louis (Michel Simon) is the elderly science professor who is visited by the daughter of an American colleague. Lorraine (Patricia D'Arbanville) is the 18-year-old hippie student who Louis picks up hitchhiking. He lets her stay, after initially having reservations, and comes to like the perky teen. He allows her to invite some of her hippie friends for a birthday party, and the two generations bridge the gap at the celebration, a gathering that convinces Louis to discontinue his thoughts of suicide.
