Judith is an attractive, level-headed woman in her fifties. She lives alone and regularly treats herself to the sexual services of young men selected on Internet escort sites. That's how she meets Patrick, whose kindness and simplicity win her over. She starts seeing him regularly. This charming young man, whose real name is Marco, only works as an escort to pay the mortgage on the hair salon run by his beloved wife, Fanny. Fanny thinks he works on construction sites. When she learns the truth, Marco stops selling his favors. However, little by little, as times get tougher and money grows scarce, Fanny herself pushes her husband back to his lucrative activities. And back to Judith.
