After a bitter divorce, Miriam (Léa Drucker) and Antoine (Denis Ménochet) battle for sole custody of their son, Julien (Thomas Gioria). Miriam claims the father is violent but lacks proof.

When the judge awards joint custody, Julien becomes a pawn in a tense conflict that soon brings the family’s fraught past to light.
