Irène and Christophe have spent the past ten years as parents of an invisible child. Hugo was eight years old when they last saw him. All attempts to find him were in vain. Christophe went to Mexico, and Irène resumed her career singing motets in a choir. He seeks solace at the coast, she in music. But Hugo's disappearance continues to haunt them, and they cannot share their pain with anyone. When Hugo's remains are discovered, the couple reconvenes in Montreal. They each react differently to the death of their child; their different approaches to grief and anger help them to find new purpose in their ruptured world.
