Antoine’s life is hanging on a silver thread. On his 90th birthday the entire family gathers to celebrate the eloquent and lively patriarch. But Antoine wants nothing more than to see his beloved daughter again, who he has believed for months to be traveling through South America. None of the guests dares to burden Antoine’s weak heart with the terrible truth. At his side, wife Viviane has to conceal her own grief behind a smile and meaningless small talk. The delicate debut explores the mechanism of a family and society, which out of fear of larger pain doesn’t allow itself to grieve.
