Sixty-year-old Pia is intellectually disabled and lives with her aging mother Guittou in a farmhouse on the Danish island of Langeland. She dreams of meeting a man. She dreams of a Frenchman named José from Larzac, who she knows from television and with whom she could make pizza and rosehip juice. The days come and go. Pia does exercises and strolls along the beach; she reads books, visits a day centre in the city and looks after her goose Lola with tenderness. Her conversations with her mother focus on the future – how and where will Pia live once Guittou dies? One day Pia meets Jens at the harbour. The two of them get talking and start spending time together. They go to Copenhagen for a weekend and visit the Den Blå Planet aquarium.
