She visits him at the hospital every day to share touching moments, a man who can no longer remember anything. Their conversations, often comical, gradually lift the veil on the reproaches of the past and an intense love, the last vestiges of a memory shattered by a serious accident. But in a room where time seems to have stopped, she begins to doubt her ability to accompany her beloved on his journey back to health. Never mind your feelings. When the memories of a shared life disappear, what really remains of love? Can it be rebuilt from scratch or even reinvented? (
