Henri leads a joyless and pointless life- so pointless that as soon as he loses his job he decides to end his misery at all costs. A day after he hires his killer, Henri meets a woman who changes his outlook on life. Is it too late to start living? Is life merely happening, or is it what one makes of it? A plot so simple yet so original, with the main character turning from an incapable misfit to someone we wholeheartedly root for.
