Des mois qu’Antoinette attend l’été et la promesse d’une semaine en amoureux avec son amant, Vladimir. Alors quand celui-ci annule leurs vacances pour partir marcher dans les Cévennes avec sa femme et sa fille, Antoinette ne réfléchit pas longtemps : elle part sur ses traces ! Mais à son arrivée, point de Vladimir – seulement Patrick, un âne récalcitrant qui va l’accompagner dans son singulier périple.

Antoinette, a school teacher, is looking forward to her long planned summer holidays with her secret lover Vladimir, the father of one of her pupils. When learning that Vladimir cannot come because his wife organized a surprise trekking holiday in the Cévennes National Park with their daughter and a donkey to carry their load, Antoinette decides to follow their track, by herself, with Patrick, a protective donkey.
