Matthew Morgan is living in the romantic city of Paris after retiring from his teaching post as a philosophy professor. Despite having lived in France for some time, his knowledge of the language remains limited and so he more or less remains solitary since the tragic death of his beloved wife. However, soon he meets young Pauline Laubie, a dance teacher who also feels tremendously alone in her life and the pair develop an unusual bond of friendship. Their relationship is tested when she discovers that he has a son, with Matthew having never spoken about him. It soon becomes clear that he's struggling deeply to come to terms with his wife's death and is in dire need of a loving relationship once again no matter how platonic. Will he manage to find a way through his heartbreak with his new friend? Or do some wounds run too deep?
