Synopsis: Nathalie is a philosophy teacher with a seemingly settled existence, juggling a rich life of the mind with the day-to-day demands of career and family. But beginning with the bombshell revelation that her husband of twenty-five years is leaving her, one by one the pillars of Nathalie’s life start to crumble. For the first time in ages, she finds herself adrift, but also with a newfound sense of liberation.

With nothing to hold her back, Nathalie sets out to define this new phase of her life and to rediscover herself. An uncommonly intelligent, soul-searching look at what it means to create a life of one’s own.
