    • Synopsis
    • ARMAND LACOURTADE, 43, is an agricultural equipment salesman. Recently, he's been going through tough times and no longer puts much effort into his work or his friends. He's even fed up with his lifestyle as a gay single man.
      One night, Armand rescues a young woman, CURLY, who instantly fall in love with him.
      Curly and Armand, who is not impervious to her charm, will try to meet in secret despite Curly’s father surveillance. They finally run away together turning this love escapade into a full-blown manhunt.
      Armand and Curly's relationship is a different kettle of fish. Curly dreams of everlasting love with Armand but he doesn't seem very ready: too anxious at the idea of loving a girl or maybe just at the idea of love...!
