Françoise (Valérie Dréville) is a teacher of art history who returns to her birthplace in Bretagne after having lived in Paris for years. She takes a teaching post at the University of Rennes, where she once had a wild time as a student. Memories of that time are shown in flashbacks and with archive footage. The green colour of the paintings, which she discusses in her lectures, returns in images of the heavily forested Breton landscape. In that same period, Ion (Kaou Langoët) is embarking on a study of geography in Rennes.
By switching between the two protagonists, it slowly becomes clear how much they are linked together. Key moments are shown twice, from the perspective of the teacher and of the student. This results in a personal and nostalgic story with avant-garde elements. A dreamy constellation in which Pascale Breton muses and reflects on the time when mobile phones had not yet been invented.
