Gilbert Valence is a theater actor. His talent and lengthy career have secured him the greatest of roles. One evening, after his performance in “Exit the King” by Eugène Ionesco, in which he plays Berenger the 1st, his agent and old friend, Georges, informs him that his wife, daughter, and son-in-law have been killed in a road accident. In time his life regains a semblance of normalcy. Gilbert Valence now divides his time between his grandson (whom he dotes on) and the theater. His role at the moment is Prospero, the main character in Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”. He resumes his old habits: a daily coffee and the newspaper in the bar, rehearsals and the performances. Even the young actress, who plays Miranda opposite him, falls under his spell. Yet he doesn't have the heart to start a relationship with her.
