A documentary of humanity, old age and a vanishing way of life in provincial France.
In a small French village, the world moves past the window of Madame Clos. Over countless cups of tea she remembers the things she's seen, the people she knew and the world as it was.
The ever-vivacious Madame Clos is a part of the daily dramas, the local weddings, the lives of the children and the other villagers. In her talks with filmmaker Jane Oehr, Madame Close recalls the moments from her life, happy and sad, remaining full of exuberance as she approaches her 100th year.
