Synopsis :

Between two household chores, an old couple tell their granddaughter about their life both in Vietnam and in France, during the war.
From their first meeting, when they were 20, till today, they describe all the main stages in their relationship. They talk about exile, immigration, at times on a light and humour tones, at times on a more serious one.
