In his mid-50s, Germain lives a quiet life at the local bar, with his girlfriend Annette, in the park where he counts the pigeons or in the vegetable garden, where he grows produce to take to market. Germain's father left his mother as soon as she became pregnant and she still blames her son for ruining her chance at love. At school, Germain never learned to read properly and became the butt of all the teacher's jokes. One day, in the park, he meets Margueritte, an old lady whose work took her all over the world and who shares her love of books with Germain. Soon, a true bond of affection unites them, and Germain realizes that he has the right to take control of his destiny...
