In this wrenching, soulful story, Frédi is a middle-aged regular Joe, except that he has the miraculous power to heal people by his touch. He has always rejected his abilities, uncertain if he has been given a sacred gift or a life sentence. But when circumstances give him no choice, the news of this working-class miracle worker soon brings crowds flocking to his meager mobile home. None of this has much healing effect on Frédi himself. It does not cure his own anxiety, his epileptic bouts, his nightmares and self-doubts, nor does it help him to deal with his problematic teenage daughter and his bitter father. But when he meets Nina, a woman awash in alcohol and with a black hole where her soul should be, he becomes convinced that helping her might finally clear out enough space in his heart to love again.
