Anna (Jane Birkin) has just moved into her beautiful new seaside house in Brittany. The place is still cluttered with boxes out of which ghosts appear that start tormenting her. To Birkin these ghosts are quite real. Like Birkin, Anna has lived many lives: she has been married three times and has had three daughters from different men (John Hurt, Tcheky Karyo). Life has not been easy for her or for her three daughters. All those who counted on her, dead or undead, seem to have moved in with her and assail her with reproaches, regrets and accusations especially her mama (Geraldine Chaplin) and Papa (Michel Piccoli). Will Anna manage to escape them and be able start a new life?
