Raphaëlle is 19 when she meets L., a great 39-year-old lawyer with whom she does an internship. Quickly, she falls under his charm: he brings her the lightness she longs for. Their initially clandestine romance will soon be lived to light. But over the years, the relationship fades: their luminous complicity, their carefree life are called into question, everything becomes complex. And Raphaëlle’s desire for a child precipitates the end of their relationship. She is going through a period of depression.
Fortunately, her friend Sydney, with whom she has been flirting since her teenage years, is not far away, he consoles her. In contrast to L., Sydney is a dreamer, leisured and artist. Will Raphaëlle find peace with him by giving birth to a little girl? Built on the ruins of her relationship with L., under whose influence she remains, her family happiness is fragile…
