One of the most beautiful villages in France.
A woman, and the men who surround her.
A heartache. A vow. A mystery. A search.
And a list.
In Roussillon, in Provence, the south of France, Pascal, a former miner of ochres, finds his life purpose in providing ochre pigments to painters in Paris, and makes frames in exchange for paintings. His grandson André hides Pascal's collection just before he leaves to fight in World War II, while André's wife, Lisette, whose deepest yearning is to participate in the art world of Paris, must remain in Roussillon to retrieve the paintings.
