“Aymé, a farmer, has a hard time to recover from his wife’s death. He was not that much attached to her but she was quite a handy worker. Since she’s dead, Aymé can’t cope with the domestic works: the dishes piled up, the housework is not done, well…he urgently needs a wife. But to meet a woman in an isolated village is not that easy. Aymé decides to have recourse to a matrimonial agency. When she understands Aymé is not looking for love but for a housekeeper, the manager of the agency proposes him to go to Romania where girls are up to everything to leave the misery they live in behind. In Romania, he meets Elena. Aymé ignores that leaving for Romania, he will bring back more than he was looking for there” (gaumont.net).
