A summer’s day. A man, his lover and his daughter arrive at their country house for the weekend. Since her mother’s death, the 16-year-old girl has lived with her father who is not very attentive. He is tired of his day-to-day routine at work and does not know where to turn for the strength to carry on. His lover, a violinist, has lost all joie de vivre. She is lost between music, love and her career. Although they love one another, their relationship is strained and at breaking point.
