Kristine, an art historian, suddenly loses her voice after a success­ful auction. She retreats to her family’s house in the south of France. The villagers as well as the Germans who live there are surprised to see her after such a long time. That she can’t speak doesn’t seem to bother her old friends – just the opposite.
