After getting married with Mounir, Murielle finds herself trapped in a stifling emotional environment that insidiously leads the family towards a tragic demise. Murielle and Mounir are madly in love. Since his childhood, the young man has lived with Doctor Pinget, who ensures he wants for nothing. When Mounir and Murielle decide to get married and have kids, the couple’s dependence on the doctor becomes excessive. Murielle thus finds herself trapped in a stifling emotional environment that insidiously leads the family towards a tragic demise. "The real leading role belongs to Emilie Dequenne, who plays her tragic role outstandingly: at the beginning she is still the happy wife in love, but as the film progresses she develops into a depressive bundle of nerves who no longer knows how to get out of her situation. Her performance goes right to the heart." (Outnow)
