Following a date with her husband getting cut short, Mia (a masterful Virginie Efira) pauses on her motorcycle ride home to shelter from the rain in a Parisian bistro.
She observes the customers enjoying a birthday celebration, tourists giggling at escargot, and all the human ephemera surrounding her, until a gunman enters and begins shooting.
Months later, Mia still feels distant from herself and her life before the attack. She returns to the restaurant and speaks to other survivors, determined to make sense of it all.
