Marie and Boris, married for 15 years, are going through the emotional turmoil of divorce in front of their twin daughters. At the center of the dispute is the house that Marie purchased but Boris has renovated, and both want. Without a steady job, Boris can’t afford to move so the two must share the house stalemated by domestic standoffs and complex turns, which only continues to drag out the divorce proceedings. Lafosse’s intimate, emotional movie looks at what it means to be a couple, while also exploring the dichotomy of two stubborn people who must figure out a way to peacefully coexist for their children when love is gone.
