    • Synopsis
    • Maxime runs a small ambulance company, which is on the verge of going bust. His professional problems are coming between him and
      his family; his kids don’t talk to him and his wife is cheating on him. Then a call from the police informs him that his mother, Olga, has
      been arrested. He goes to bail her out, and on their way back home they pick up a child, Tiemoko, whose mother is about to be evicted,
      and whom Olga has promised to hide.
      Maxime takes his mother and Tiemoko back to her place and decides to stay for the weekend in the house where he grew up to get
      away from his own problems. It’s an opportunity for the son to remember where he comes from, and therefore who he is. Seeing Olga
      takes him back to his happy childhood. Behind their eternal arguing, his parents give the impression of a loving couple with generous
      values – a couple that always served as a model for him. But time passes. He has to face up to the fact that this happiness is theirs, not
      his. This life is their life. Now, he has to deal with his own, by trying to give as much as he has received.
