Meet Laura: the woman who puts the 'je ne sais quoi' into the question: and what do you do? Laura has it all. A gorgeous husband, two beautiful children and an idyllic lady-of-leisure Parisian lifestyle. She spends her mornings sharing croissants and a grand creme with her friends, her afternoons in the Louvre and her evenings attending sophisticated soirees. It's the perfect life, isn't it? But hard as Laura is trying to enjoy her perfect life, it just doesn't seem to feel as perfect as it should. It's hard to stretch 'meeting for coffee' to last the entire morning, the Scandinavian au pair is driving her to distraction, her husband's hardly ever in their beautiful home, and Parisian society doesn't exactly embrace the femme inactive. So when her husband embarks on an affair with the irritatingly petite Flavia, Laura decides it is time to review her life.
