For the past thirty years, Dr. Jean-Pierre Werner has been working as a general practitioner in the countryside, far away from any other medical facility. Everyone in the town counts on him and he knows it. When he finds out that he suffers from a serious illness, Werner is left with no choice but to find a replacement, although he considers himself irreplaceable. Enter Natalie, a young doctor, coming from the hospital to assist him. She will have to adjust to country life, just as Werner will have to adjust to not being the only doctor in town.
