Synopsis

Drama. Tensions arise in a French family when one of the sons, Coco, mysteriously returns to the fold after fifteen years away. Coco's behaviour switches erratically, and in addition there is the presence in the house of his brother Francky, a policeman recently suspended from his job following his marriage break-up. Francky is also given to unruly and edgy moods, but his little daughter is strangely drawn to Coco. As time passes the situation is increasingly fraught, particularly as Coco's behaviour becomes unpredictable.
