After the death of her beloved husband, Katrin, a literary biographer, copes with the loss by writing his personal history.

To understand and recreate the period of his greatest happiness - hitch-hiking through France as a young man, madly in love with his companion, a French girl named Monique - Katrin embarks on a heartbreaking journey to discover the man she never fully knew.
