Patrice Leconte directs this subtle comedy drama starring French rock star Johnny Hallyday alongside iconic French actor Jean Rochefort. A mysterious stranger, Milan (Hallyday), steps off a train in a place to which he has never been before. Looking for a chemist's shop to buy some aspirin for a raging headache, he comes across a retired school teacher, Manesquier (Jean Rochefort). The two men are complete opposites - or at least they seem to be. But as time passes and events conspire to bring them together once again, each man comes to realise that what he really always wanted is the life of the other man.
