Summary
Marianne Messman, a housewife, wants to escape her loveless marriage and an uncaring and unfeeling husband of thirty-five years. Marianne and her husband, army sergeant major Lothar, take a trip to Paris, during which Marianne leaps off the Pont Neuf into the Seine, but she is saved from drowning by a homeless man. Angered by her behaviour, major Lothar takes a coach trip back home to Germany, expecting that a psychologist will escort Marianne home a few days later. While recovering in hospital, Marianne comes across a painting of the tiny port town of Kerdruc in Brittany and decides to try her luck on the coast. In Kerdruc, Marianne meets a host of colourful characters who all gravitate around the restaurant of Ar Mor (The Sea). It is this cast of true Bretons who become Marianne's new family and among whom she will find love once again. But with her husband looking to pull her back to her old life, Marianne is left with a choice - to step back into the known or to take a huge jump into an exciting and unpredictable future
