During a photo shoot, gay fashion photographer Romain collapses and is rushed to hospital. Bracing himself for the news that he has AIDS, Romain is shocked to discover that the diagnosis is even worse: he has terminal cancer. Unfortunately, the tumour is too far advanced for chemotherapy and he only has a few weeks to live. Refusing to share the prognosis with his family, Romain dumps his boyfriend, stuns his loved ones with a few painful home truths then heads for the beach to reconnect with his bohemian grandmother. As Romain retreats into memories of his childhood, his rage and denial gradually fade, supplanted by an acceptance of his impending death.
