The relationship between a father and daughter is complicated by the arrival of a handsome young man.
Lionel (Alex Descas), a widower, has raised his daughter, Josephine (Mati Diop), on his own since she was young. The two are used to living alone, dependent solely on one another. But, now that Josephine is in college, Lionel is beginning to realize they cannot stay isolated forever. Lionel reluctantly accepts the fact that his daughter has grown up and will one day leave him, when their neighbor Noe (Grégoire Colin) makes his long-harbored feelings for Josephine known.
