Tired of life, a psychotherapist prepares to retire, and eagerly counts down to the day he will finally finish dealing with his patients. The monotonous everyday routine of his life is disrupted by a young German patient, Agatha, who insists on having therapy with him. For the first time in his life, he is forced to consider stepping out of his shell and offering a helping hand to another person. Although this minimalist psychological novel takes place in post-war France, its themes of feeling loneliness, reviewing the past, falling in love, and aging remain extremely topical.
