Synopsis

Tous les mardis, Claudine se rend dans un hôtel de montagne pour y fréquenter des hommes de passage. Elle assouvit ainsi ses besoins sexuels sans avoir à s’attacher. Aussi, elle s’inspire des vies de ces visiteurs pour écrire des lettres de voyage à Baptiste – son fils handicapé – de la part d’un père qui les a quittés. Claudine voit son quotidien bouleversé lorsqu’elle rencontre Michel et qu’il décide de prolonger son séjour pour elle. Entre révolte et déni, elle tombe amoureuse et tout son monde vacille : Claudine se surprend à rêver d’une autre vie.
