Wealthy, young lovers Mousse (Isabelle Carre) and Louis (Melvil Poupaud) only have eyes for each. But their happiness is also dependent on their need for drugs, and one day they overdose. While Mousse survives, tragically Louis dies.
Soon afterwards Mousse discovers she's pregnant. Feeling bereft and lost on her own, she flees Paris choosing to stay in a remote house far from the buzz of Paris. Sometime later, Louis' brother joins her in her refuge.
