"After 30 years of marriage, the poet Mia is left by her husband Boris because of a young, French colleague. After a breakdown and a short stay at a psychiatric hospital, she goes to her hometown, where her mother is living in a nursing home. Mia rents a house and spends the summer there - entirely without men.
