Jean Barnery (Charles Berling) and Pauline (Emmanuelle Beart) first meet at a ball at Barbazac in the Charente region of France when she is twenty. He is a Protestant minister, the father of a young daughter, and has just resigned himself to the failure of his marriage with Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert). The pressures of the upstanding Protestant society surrounding them do not count since their "sentimental destinies" are closely bound.
In the tragic upheavals of a changing world marked by the incurable wound of the Great War and in which certainties and industrial dynasties crumble, the love of Jean and Pauline, in all its luminous permanence, is stronger than time passing, time passed.
"Love...there's nothing else in life...nothing"
