The island of Houat, forty minutes off Quiberon (Morbihan), is a ship made of stone and moor, anchored in the middle of the Atlantic. Almost every day, the Mêle-Vent liaises with the mainland with, on board, supplies and a few passengers essential to the island, such as the teacher with her cat, workers and craftsmen. The flood of tourists is reserved for the summer. In winter, in Houat, everything is much quieter.
When the boat arrives, Mathé Eymard, a municipal employee, loads her vehicle. She drives one of the very few electric cars allowed on the island. The employee ensures deliveries from the port to the village. It brings in particular the mail, the link with the mainland. On the island, no distribution, everyone comes to pick it up themselves at La Poste. Valérie Guégan knows each of the 233 inhabitants. She has been a postman in Houat for 35 years, where there are few jobs. Living conditions are also special, with only two mini markets and a bakery closed in winter.
