Magali, a vineyard owner, is 45 years old and lives a rather solitary life. Her two children have left home now and she dedicates her life to her farm. She doesn't dismiss the idea of meeting a man but she simply doesn't have time to socialize.

Two of her friends, unaware of their mutual action, will secretly try to find the right man for Magali. Isabelle uses the classified ads of the local newspaper and meets Gérald, a man she will "test" before presenting him to Magali. As for Rosine, she decides to present Etienne, her former teacher and lover, to Magali, hoping that both will get along well.
