Mathias, a down-and-out New Yorker, travels to Paris to liquidate a huge, valuable apartment he has inherited from his estranged father. Once there however, he discovers that a refined old woman, Mathilde, is living in the apartment with her daughter Chloé. Mathias quickly learns that the apartment is a “viager” – an ancient French system for buying and selling apartments – and that he will not actually get possession of the apartment until Mathilde dies. While working with a Parisian real-estate dealer, to sell his contract for the apartment, Mathias discovers that Mathilde and his father were more to each other than mere tenant and landlord.
