被救起後的Marianne在醫院中甦醒,丈夫對她的行徑怒不可抑,決定單獨一人先返回德國。她在醫院中偶見一幅手繪的風景畫,被畫中的風景所吸引,於是決定到那裡看看。那個地方是布列塔尼的一個海港城Kerdruc,城中一家小酒館裡,有一群精彩的小人物,他們給了Marianne活下去的勇氣,成了她新的家人。不只如此,她還有了新的戀情,藝術家Yann帶著她探索Kerdruc的秘密。

不多久,士官長丈夫出現在Kerdruc,婚姻的責任與外遇的罪惡感,拉扯著她的心,Marianne只好黯然離開給她新生的Kerdruc。她,真的無法找到幸福嗎?

Marianne Messman, a housewife, wants to escape her loveless marriage and an uncaring and unfeeling husband of 35 years. Marianne and her husband (army sergeant major Lothar) take a trip to Paris, during which Marianne leaps off the Pont Neuf into the Seine, but she is saved from drowning by a homeless man.

Angered by her behaviour, major Lothar takes a coach trip back home to Germany, expecting that a psychologist will escort Marianne home a few days later. However, Marianne comes across a hand-painted scene of the tiny port of Kerdruc in Brittany, and becomes fixated with the place.

Marianne decides to make her way to Kerduc, and once there meets a host of colourful characters who all gravitate around the small restaurant of Ar Mor (The Sea). It is this cast of true Bretons who become Marianne's new family. She finds love and passion with Yann, an artist who becomes her guide to the secrets of Brittany. Before long, Marianne's husband is back to retrieve her and Marianne feels pulled towards her old life by way of duty and guilt. She leaves Kerduc and gets as far as Paris before she realises it's now or never when it comes to building the life she really wants.
