Things to Come

Things to Come
What happens when the life you’ve worked so hard to build falls apart all at once? A philosophy teacher leads a seemingly settled existence, juggling a rich life of the mind with the day-to-day demands of her career and family, including frequent visits to her drama queen mother. But beginning with the bombshell revelation that her husband of twenty-five years is leaving her, one by one the pillars of her life start to crumble. For the first time in ages, she finds herself adrift, but also with a new-found sense of liberation. With nothing to hold her back, she sets out to define this new phase of her life and to rediscover herself. In French with English subtitles.
