Paul, in his thirties, lives in Paris with his aunts, two old aristocrats who have raised him since he was two years old, and whose dream is to see him become a virtuoso pianist. His life consists of the same daily routine, stuck between the grand piano in the living room and his aunts’ dance class, where he works as an accompanist. Cut off from the outside world, Paul has aged without having ever lived… Until the day he meets Madame Proust, his neighbor from the fourth floor. This eccentric woman has the recipe for an herbal tea that, with the help of music, is able to bring back the most deeply buried memories. With Madame Proust’s help, Paul will discover his past and find the key to finally live his own life…
