Mado (Nicole Garcia), a famous actress, is spending her summer vacation in her country home in Brittany with her brother Simon (Jean-Pierre Marielle), her son Julien (Robinson Stevenin), who wants to become a filmmaker, and Brice (Bernard Giraudeau), her present lover, who is the director of her most recent films. Things are very stormy between Julien and his mother. Julien is madly in love with Lili (Ludivine Sagnier, SWIMMING POOL), a local girl who dreams of becoming an actress. Lili thinks fondly of Julien, but she is fascinated by Brice, the well-known filmmaker who seems not indifferent to her graceful charms.
