Louis Bolomey, 36 years of age, does not really have a job, but he is the owner of a small fortune, which allows him to live pretty comfortably. He takes care of his house, tends to his beehives and orchard, and goes hunting and fishing. After the death of his mother – his father had died long ago – his young wife Adrienne leaves him, without naming a reason. Suddenly, he must confront his life and fears all by himself.
