Paris in August. Annie is an elegant doctor criss-crossing Paris, visiting her patients on her scooter: Richard Piotr, a hypochondriac, Laurent Blondel, a young man who is HIV+ and has given up hope. When trouble starts, she fights hard to find a solution. How else can she feel, with that hypochondriac persecuting her, convinced that she has contaminated him? He never gives up. He threatens her. She tries psychiatry, the police and even contacts a retired contract killer. When Laurent Blondel begs her to convince him that life is worth living without love and desire, she is at a loss. How could she suspect that he would be her salvation?
