Synopsis:
Alex and Noémie, in their thirties, would like to have a child. But their plans are turned upside down when Alex's mother, Suzanne, starts doing crazy stuff. It's because she has contracted "semantic dementia", a fatal neurodegenerative disease that affects her behavior. She spends lavishly, pays nightly visits to her neighbors to eat sandwiches, makes herself a fake driver's license with glue and scissors. Suzanne the mother goes to Suzanne the unmanageable-kid. A strange school of parenting for Noémie and Alex.
