Antoine struggles internally with despair and hatred, but he does not want to give a place to either in his heart. Only when he realizeshow much his little son needs him does he confront the new reality: a life that accepts loss and ventures a new beginning.

“We wanted to stay close to Antoine Leiris’s original story. Changing the narrative would have felt dishonest. Antoine’s story is very poetic, very refined and touching. So we had to be extremely careful with it. We brought his text into a dramatic form wherenecessary. The secondary strand with his family was added as a fictional element in order to make Antoine’s inner transformation tangible.This is the story of a man who experiences the severe blow of his wife’s murder and, with his despair and feelings of hatred, is indanger of falling apart. In order to survive, he has to fully focus on his love for his child. A very intimate, emotional drama thatoscillates between life and death, between heaven and darkness.”
