Synopsis

Marguerite is a solitary 17-year old, overly judgemental of others and incapable of having a normal relationship with anyone. Unable to confide in either her family or her schoolmates, she spends most of her time alone, talking to God. Meanwhile, an older woman, Claire has become frustrated at not being able to have a child. Suspecting that her partner is sterile, she goes to Paris to consult a fertility expert. She ends up having a series of liaisons with desirable men who are more than willing to give her a child. In another part of Paris, a man in his late thirties, Jacques, is trying to restore his self-esteem after losing his wife, his child and his job. He becomes entangled with a mysterious young woman Eva, who engages him as a private detective to trace her missing sister. Three people, three lives… can any of them find what they are looking for? —filmsdefrance.com
