It's hard to find love with a job like Ambroise's - an embalmer in a small French town, he rarely spends time with the living. And while Manelle - a home-help for the elderly - enjoys her days taking care of her spirited clients, she finds her evenings are often spent with TV dinners for one.
So when chance - and an unusual road trip - bring Ambroise and Manelle together, they are both more than ready for the rest of their lives to begin . . .
