Synopsis

Following the success of My Father’s Guests, actress-turned-director Anne Le Ny brings to the silver screen a dazzling dramatic comedy about friendship, betrayal and what it means to follow your dreams.

Marithé (played by The Bélier Familys Karin Viard) works in a training centre, assisting people who are seeking alternative job options. Her raison d’être is helping others to find their true vocation.

Marithé’s new client Carole (Emmanuelle Devos) – upper class and married to a celebrated chef − seems to have it all. She runs a very successful restaurant with her husband, and they are preparing to develop the business further by opening another branch nearby. But Carole can no longer stand the pressure of working with her husband, Sam, nor does she want to live in his shadow any longer. She wants to turn her life around and wants Marithé’s help to do it.

The two women hit it off immediately. However, things get complicated when Marithé becomes secretly attracted to Sam. Suddenly she has some very personal motives in helping Carole to start over…
