Baden Baden

When Ana, 26 years old, finishes a job she hates as runner on a big film shoot in Belgium, she makes an impulse decision and heads to Strasbourg, the town she grew up in. Once there, she gives herself a mission; to replace her grandmother’s bath with a floor level shower, better adapted to someone her age. Over the course of a summer, during which a broken love affair briefly blossoms again, Ana does her best to cope with life.
