Synopsis: François, écrivain réputé, va bientôt intégrer l'Académie française. Il est marié à Rose, une chirurgienne, et ne fréquente que des personnes riches et haut placé. Or, François, rongé par un mal de dos terrible, va croiser Martha, une guérisseuse, qui va parvenir à atténuer miraculeusement la douleur. François va alors sentir une véritable dépendance aux mains de Martha. Une amitié va alors naître entre ces deux personnalités très différentes et issues de deux mondes bien opposés.


Synopsis: Philippe is a well-known writer, whose life was going smoothly: a surgeon wife, a circle of high-ranking friends, a Parisian mansion... And above all, an imminent entry into the Académie Française. Except that Philippe suffers from terrible back pain that plagues his life. When he meets the incredible Martha, who picks him up after a car accident on the roads of Normandy, his vision of the world changes. With her gentle madness and her healing hands, this woman who seems so free is especially concerned with treating others, even if it means forgetting herself. Between these two characters that everything opposes, a surprising friendship is woven, with the opportunity for them to finally seize the best that life can offer them.
