Michel has always been fascinated by the exploits of the French aeroplane postal service and dreams of piloting an aircraft himself. At the age of fifty he accepts that he will never fulfil his dream and instead buys a self-build kayak when he is struck by its similarity to an aeroplane fuselage. When he sets off on a solitary kayaking holiday he finds himself drawn to a waterside café run by Laetitia and her assistant Mila.
