Synopsis:
Every morning, Cécile gets in her car and sets off on her rounds as a nurse in the countryside around Bordeaux. As a presence both distant and reassuring, she tends, changes dressings, washes, applies creams, does her patients’ hair, gets them dressed, massages them, wipes them clean, gives injections, and scans and monitors them. And then she listens to them: their thoughts, their aches and pains, their stories both past and present. The most trivial and intimate gestures of well-being become so natural that you would think you were at the hairdresser’s. They natter about this and that, about big and small matters, they joke around while she washes their backs, their armpits, their buttocks, their stomachs, between their legs and all the rest. For most of them, she will be the only visitor they will see all day.
