    Antonin pays a visit to his father whom he hasn’t seen for fifteen years. He asks a friend and cameraman to accompany him because he wants to make a documentary of the encounter. Very quickly, everything gets out of control: his film and his relationship with his father, which he had been planning to patch up.
