    • Synopsis
    • Louis was abandoned by his mother when he was only a few weeks old. Now 16, he wants to know where he comes from - despite the reluctance of his adoptive parents. So Louis sets off for the South. After having sought out his birthmother, spying on her every move in her flower shop, he tells her that he is her son. Overwhelmed by this sudden irruption from the past, Solange denies and violently rejects the truth. Delving into her former life is just too painful. But Louis perseveres, and in the midst of this turmoil he searches for, and finds himself. Stumbling between obstacles and small victories, a pathetic but luminous relationship develops between Louis and his mother. Could this be a new beginning?
