Seventy-year-old Shauna, a sophisticated, free-spirited and independent woman and a retired architect, has set aside and given up on her love life, but one day she accidentally runs into Pierre, a forty-five-year-old happily married doctor and father, who had made a deep impression on here during a short encounter fifteen years earlier. He still sees her as an attractive woman, but they are both wary of starting a relationship. While Pierre’s family life soon falls apart, Shauna fights against emotions and feelings that she thought were only in the past.
