Heart-broken following a break-up, Martine receives the unexpected visit of her mother, Monique. Too engrossed in her own sadness, Martine doesn’t notice right away that her mother is hiding something but, progressively, a bad feeling starts to take hold of her. During this short stay, these two very different women will have one last chance of getting closer to one another before they run out of time.
