August 1, in the Aubonne countryside, Cécile and her 10 year old daughter Marion have just acquired an old 1970’s Ford Taunus estate car. But the roads through the region seem strewn with pitfalls than would appear and their voyage is delayed inces-santly. Perhaps, the way ahead will open up once the problems have been solved. Right up to the moon.
