French film-maker Nicolas Philibert directs this documentary about Nénette, a 40-year-old orangutan kept at the Jardins des Plantes zoo in Paris. A star attraction at the zoo, Nénette nevertheless pays little attention to the hordes of visitors who flock to look at her. A mother of four who has outlived three mates, she has resided at the zoo for over 30 years. The film shows her going about her daily routines behind the glass in which she sees her visitors only as shadowy reflections.
