“My name is Anita Moreau and I live in a two-bedroom apartment in Jersey, just above a Thai restaurant. Today is my birthday. I won’t tell you how old I am because it’s been agreed that we ladies keep things like that a secret. Everything is ready: the champagne, my dress. I even bought myself some perfume. It smells like vanilla, like a trip to the tropical islands. And I’m going to spray some on my bed. It’s quite an exceptional event. I don’t want to miss it. I want my ‘big leap’ to be a success.” Anita refuses to be fate’s pawn, but she is forced to postpone her big plans due to an unexpected phone call from her doctor telling her she has breast cancer. But life, full of surprises, plays tricks on even the most methodical. On the road to Noirmoutier Island, a handsome, mysterious man crosses her path and she discovers that she cannot shake him from her thoughts.
Nevertheless, she refuses this emotional upheaval with all her might. Anita wants to end her days herself, and not to let the disease decide her fate. But she doesn’t realize that her plans have changed. What if life is not always what is expected, but something even more beautiful and poetic?
