Jeanne (Emilie Dequenne) lives in a house in the suburbs with her mother Louise (Catherine Deneuve). The two women get on well together. Louise earns her living by looking after children. Jeanne is half-heartedly looking for a job. Louise harbors the hope of getting her daughter a job with Samuel Bleistein (Michel Blanc), a famous lawyer whom she knew in her youth, but Jeanne and Bleistein’s worlds are light years apart.
