François Cluzet is Jean-Pierre, a much-loved doctor in a rural French town.
He reassures and cares for his patients day and night, seven days a week.
When he becomes sick himself, he keeps this a secret, but soon realises that he needs to find someone to take over his practice.
A younger city doctor, Nathalie (Marianne Denicourt), is introduced as the new medic – will she adapt to this new life and take over from the man who thought he was irreplaceable?
A touching celebration of life.
