Jean-Claude is a world-weary man stuck in the thankless job of delivering paperwork to people facing eviction or seizure of their possessions and visiting his brusque fault-finding father in a care home. Unexpectedly he decides to shake himself out of his stultifying rut by enrolling for tango lessons in the dance studio across the street from his office. It is there that he forms a tentative bond with a bride-to-be who shares his longing for something more out of life.
