They were not aware of her illness, but also discover another secret: their mother has usurped Lucile’s identity and fallen deeply into debt. In this emergency, before their mother passes away, Lucile and Paul will have to find their way to forgiveness and save a lot more than just the furniture. The film is produced by EAVE graduate Julie Esparbes for Hélicotronc and co-produced by Swiss Alva Films and French Tripode Productions. It has received support from the Fédération Wallonie -Bruxelles (light productions fund), Be TV, the RTBF, Proximus, the Tax Shelter via Shelter Prod, the Loterie nationale, the Région Occitanie and the Office Fédéral de la Culture suisse.
