Description:01 16 30 00 France, 1910s. Modest house, populist milieu. A woman looks after her husband who is bedridden and seriously ill. She orders to her daughter to go to open the door: a portrait of care and convalescence. A middle-class woman enters, visiting. She brings things to eat, presents, the charity of the rich to the poor. She is leaving to return to her house when she spies a road worker who is returning her runaway son. Her small child returned safely, she is relieved and does not know how to thank the man. The roadman tells her how he found him. The relieved mother covers her son in kisses.
