House in the Macchia, The

Romain, a 52-year old professor of medicine, with an international reputation, is driving to his country house in the south of France. Sara, a young woman, is with him. She doesn't say anything, but she decides how they travel. Late at night, they reach the isolated mountain house. Does Sara want to seduce Romain? Understandably, the young woman involves him in an emotional conflict, because the following day he leaves to fetch his present partner from the station: She's Andrea, Sara's mother.
