After squandering their inheritance while living la vie de bohème abroad, siblings Pascal and Pauline return to their childhood friends in the Loire Valley. Awaiting them is a tidal wave of pent-up resentment from all those in their orbit, in particular a bitter, virulently anti-bourgeois nursing home manager who will stop at nothing to see the pair humiliated.

Preceded by L’éveil, a short film as part of the Mobile Film Festival
