Antoine (Thomas Blanchard) has just returned to his hometown, where he reunites with his former lover and the mother of their little girl, Elsa (Lina Doillon), whom he has never met. An unexpected turn of events leaves Antoine suddenly alone and to take care of Elsa upon their first introduction; his impromptu parenting proves to be clumsy and self-conscious, but the unlikely pair find ways to bond, and Antoine gets the opportunity to discover more about his daughter, and himself.
