Plot Summary:

A bittersweet and atypical love story between Irene, a comedienne in her 40s, traveling through the north of France with her one-woman show Sale Affaire (Dirty Business), and Dries, a youngish vagabond who becomes smitten with her and her show. Despite regular cell phone reminders that she has a husband and child waiting at home, Irene is nonetheless charmed by the attention of her ardent, cheerful and tender admirer.
