Thirty-something Adèle is devastated following a painful breakup. With no close friends or family, her distant cousin, Rachel, reluctantly takes her in and graciously attempts to salvage Adèle’s professional and love life. Rachel finds her a job and suggests that Adèle sleep with other men to get over her heartbreak. Adèle bounces from one lover to the next in search of her perfect companion, but cannot escape thoughts of her ex. Finally, she meets a man who may just hold the answer to her broken heart.
