In this colourful, visually playful Franco-Canadian comedy, a young woman seeks her place in life with the help of her brother. 35-year old Sophia (Anne-Élisabeth Bossé) may have a doctorate in philosophy, but the meaning of life still escapes her. Out of her depth in everyday life and looking for a job, she moves in with her elder brother – only temporarily of course. Karim (Patrick Hivon) is happy to be able to help his sister, but their relationship is put to the test when Karim falls for Sophia‘s gynaecologist. Back to her own devices, Sophia is forced to look reality in the eye and finally grow up. But what sounds so easy in theory is tricky in practice.
