(2016 aka Irreplaceable),
Jean-Pierre is a small time country doctor, but when he
realize he is dying, he finds himself suddenly with a partner,
Nathalie. When Nathalie comes to work with Jean-Pierre she does not
know about Jean-Pierre's condition. Jean-Pierre teaches Nathalie
that being a doctor isn't all about policy, medicine and treatment.
