Nenette, has lived in Paris since 1972. Every day she takes in the parade of people who pass in front of her window. Because, the orangutan lady is the star of the Paris zoo.
At over 40 years old, she is an exception and a celebrity in Paris. She has seen generations of keepers and visitors come and go. Director Nicolas Philibert shows the numerous visitors, who often solely come for the ape lady, only in reflections of the glass pane that separates the apes.
Instead, Nenette, now a grandmother of three, takes center stage as she goes about her daily errands and idleness. Accompanied by the off-screen interpretations, attributions, zoological-philosophical reflections of the visitors.
