The story of a woman's life, from childhood to death, somewhere in provincial France, from the 1950s to just shy of 2025. She has everything; doting parents, a loving husband and family; all the comforts that the middle-classes have grown accustomed to. But sheâ_Ts bored. She takes up all sorts of outlets to try to make something happen in her life: adultery, charity work, esotericism, manic house-cleaning, motherhood and various hobbies - each one abandoned faster than the last. But no matter what she does, her life remains unfocussed and unfulfilled. Nothing truly satisfies her, because deep down - just like the town where she lives - the landscape is non-descript, flat, horizontal.
