Julie (Miou-Miou) is a 40-year-old single mom toa ravishing young daughter. She is also a successful wallpaper designer who never received her high school diploma. When a dashing commercial consul invites her to teach print design near his post in
Pondichéry, Julia goes back to school to get the qualification to enable her to accept the job. The students couldn't be nicer and the class clown sweetly courts her. Julie breaks up with her devoted but condescending boyfriend, Felix, gets drunk then gets lost in the labyrinthine Montparnasse subway station, where she meets Leo, a farmer trumpeter with the Paris Opera. At age 70, he's also studying for a high school diploma, and the two begin a deeply supportive but chaste relationship.
