    • Synopsis
    • In Provence, Louise struggles to raise two kids and save her late husband’s fruit tree business. But times are tough and even Louise’s delicious pastries can’t keep the bank from trying to take her house, as what’s left of Louise’s life feels like it’s spinning out of control. So when she accidentally hits a stranger named Pierre with her car, it seems like the last straw. But Pierre is unlike anyone Louise has ever met. A withdrawn genius with a unique sense of wonder and logic, he is under scrutiny by the state, for possibly being a danger to himself. But when he meets Louise and her kids, Pierre suddenly feels like he’s found what he’s always been looking for- A home. Intrigued by his eccentric personality and candid innocence, Louise’s kids are drawn to Pierre, yet despite her attraction to this odd and brilliant man, Louise tries to keep him out of her already complicated life and broken heart. But oblivious to social codes, Pierre keeps being there for Louise, somehow bringing solutions to her problems, and laughter back into her home. And as she slowly opens up to him, Louise finds herself connecting with a sense of wonder, that might just rekindle her taste for life.
