A chain-smoking nurse, Madame Mathilde, has built a small cottage in her backyard that she makes available to homeless people as a Love Room. It isn’t easy to find a suitable place for a lovers’ tryst without a permanent place to stay. But singles also seek refuge in the Love Room to enjoy a quiet night.

MATHILDE AND THE LOVE ROOM is a tender portrait about the charity and solidarity of an extraordinary, socially committed woman. Will Mathilde also succeed in convincing Valérie and Mohammed to find some intimacy in her Love Room?
