Lea has just left her family nest, a detached house in one of those indeterminate places between the city and the country, to move to Paris. She is getting ready to start classes at a prestigious university, with the weight of the family’s expectations in her suitcase.
Her little brother, Antoine, age 15, is filled of anxiety and melancholy at the thought of now finding himself alone with his parents.
Meanwhile, Chloe jealously dreams of her best friend Lea’s new life in Paris while she remains at home with her parents getting a technical certificate in the neighboring town. Still, it could be worse—Gabriel is stuck in high school repeating his final year, to his father’s great displeasure, and is now convinced he’s no good at anything.
But when Antoine is hit by a reckless driver and falls into a coma, all of their lives are turned upside down…
Between midnight conversations through a Paris window, suburban streets, and a hospital room, life follows its course, with Antoine’s hanging by a thread.
What if tragedy has the power to tear down all of their disguises?
