Just as the disheveled and alcoholic filmmaker Ismael (Mathieu Almaric) embarks on a difficult new film project, his life is sent into a tailspin. His wife (Marion Cotillard), presumed dead for 20 years, come crashing back into his life creating chaos in his work and his current romantic relationship with the starry-eyed astronomer Sylvia (Charlotte Gainsbourg).
