Marie is thirty-five years old. She loves François. They have been married for twelve years and they have a two-year-old child, Paul. François would like another child but Marie is not sure she wants one, she doesn’t know why. Marie sells encyclopaedias door-to-door. One day she knocks on the door of a strange man, Bill, a fifty-year-old African American. Bill doesn’t speak French. He lives alone in a villa and never seems to go out at all. Their first encounter is difficult. Marie feels offended at first, and then intrigued by this singular character.
