Synopsis:
Henri has just lost his wife, after forty years of marriage. They used to run a hotel in the Belgian countryside. Now the hotel is closed. For Dominique, Ludovic and Louis, his three children, they must sell the hotel and start a new life, putting the memory of their mother behind them. Without confronting or sharing their father’s pain, they take matters in hand. Their plans are shaken up by the arrival of Alice, a young woman who is eight months pregnant. Henri reopens the hotel for her and, unable to talk to his children, turns her into his confidante.
