Middleaged, widowed winegrower Magali (Romand) is lonely now that her children are grown, so her best friend Isabelle (Riviere) secretly places a personal ad and decides to meet the respondents herself in order to find someone suitable for her friend. Isabelle decides saleman Gerald (Libolt) is a likely prospect and schemes to introduce them. Meanwhile, Rosine (Portal), the live-wire girlfriend of Magali's son Leo (Darmon), thinks that her older philosophy professor (and ex-lover), Etienne (Sandre), might be a match. Magali is simply mortified by the entire situation. The fourth film in Rohmer's "Tales of the Four Seasons." French with subtitles.
