Amin (Moustapha Mbengue) came from Senegal nine years ago to work in France, leaving behind his wife, Aïsha (Mareme N'Diaye), and their three children. His work is his life, his friends the men who live with him in the social home. Aïsha sees her husband only once or twice a year, for a week or two, sometimes a month. She accepts this situation as a necessity, though she yearns for the family to be reunited in France. One day, while remodeling a house, Amin meets divorcee Gabrielle (Emmanuelle Devos). At first, he is reserved, but the two share a connection, and soon a relationship begins between them.
This "beautifully crafted drama that captures the zeitgeist in a charming and human way" (Filmuforia) premiered in Directors Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival.
