Adapted from Philippe Grimbert's bestselling novel, A SECRET (UN SECRET) is a story of passion and guilt in troubled times, which unfolds as a young teenager uncovers the truth about his parents' past.

He discovers that before the war, his father Maxime (Patrick Bruel, THE COMEDY OF POWER) was married to Hannah (Ludivine Sagnier, 8 WOMEN, SWIMMING POOL) when he fell madly in love with his mother Tania (Cecile de France, AVENUE MONTAIGNE). As a young Jewish couple living in Nazi-occupied France, Maxime and Tania had to make difficult choices to survive the war and the Holocaust.
