Magali, 45, a wine grower in the South of France, feels isolated now that her son and daughter have left home. Her friend Isabelle tries to find her a husband and places a lonely hearts advertisement on her behalf – without letting her know – to which Gérald replies. At the same time Rosine, her son’s girlfriend, wants Magali to meet her former philosophy teacher (and sometime lover), Etienne. It's arranged for Magali to meet both men at Isabelle's daughter's wedding. Magali takes an instant dislike to Etienne but, still unaware of Isabelle's machinations, is immediately attracted to Gérald.
