Synopsis

Synopsis

Olivier does the best he can to fight injustice at work. But one day, when his wife Laura abandons the family home, he is left alone to juggle the children’s needs, life’s daily challenges and his job. Faced with these new responsibilities, he struggles to find a balance. And Laura is not coming back.
