A serious decision coming from a mid-life crisis comes off as a casual fling in this routine drama by Marta Meszaros. Barbara (Delphine Seyrig) is a biologist, a mother with two grown children, whose relationship to her husband has weakened over time. After a friend is killed in an accident, Barbara drives away to her mother's grave -- and perhaps to seek out her own roots as well. She is Polish but has lived in Hungary since she was little, and her mother is buried in Poland. On the way to her mother's gravesite, Barbara meets Marek (Jan Nowicki), a handsome actor who is not averse to a brief sexual encounter -- greatly complicating her life.
