Marie is 35 and she loves François, her husband of 12 years and they have a son Paul aged 2. François would like a second child but Marie is a little reluctant but she doesn't know why.
One morning she meets a Bill, a 50 year-old black American who doesn't speak much French and is very reclusive. At first he is difficult to talk to and she is a bit offended by his behaviour but then intrigued by him she tries to gauge him in conversation to prolong their meeting.
She finds an excuse to re-visit Bill and starts a torrid affair. Where will this lead Marie as she starts to discover her true self.
