Content : Recently moved to a retirement home, Mona is bored. Until the day when she takes in her little room a tiger that escaped from the zoo. Mona and her tiger get fast inseparable and the grandmother finds her smile and her sociability back.
The dining room fills with animal life and memories. But will Mona be able to keep such a big animal in a retirement house ? Adults do not seem to care about this intruder, who only shows itself when Mona’s grand-daughter, Inès, comes to visit her...
If all the retirement homes were filled with animals, would the residents find the smile again?

A funny story to deal with a difficult subject: Alzheimer's disease and also with retirement homes.
