After a life of drugs and drink, Margot finds herself in a rehab clinic in the French countryside. At first she is averse to the others trying to get their lives back on track in this homey setting – her emotions are locked up. She lives from day to day and dutifully attends therapy sessions, but slowly the outside world start getting through to her and she's able to open up to the real cause of her addiction.

In very realistic scenes, with excellent ensemble acting, Fabienne Godet evokes great empathy for these people as they wrestle; people who could have been your father, sister or daughter. They have to overcome profound shame in order to finally discover the destruction they have caused. They have often been deserted emotionally by the people who are closest to them. Now they take care of each other, revealing their darkest sides with remarkable honesty.
