Young and full of life, Murielle (Dequenne) has a promising future ahead of her when she meets and falls head over heels for Mounir (Rahim). A wedding soon follows, and the happy couple quickly set about preparing to make a family. However, with family come ties, and none come as tight as that between Mounir and his adoptive father (Arestrup). As Murielle continues to bring new life into the family, frictions between Mounir and Doctor Pinget reach boiling point. There is only one way out of this nightmare, and for Murielle all sense of reason begins to abandon her.
