April 2020. Filmmaker Etienne and his brother Paul, a music critic, spend the lockdown in their parents' country house together with their respective partners, Morgane and Carole. Every corner of the house, every object, awakens in the two brothers images of their childhood and of people who are no longer there. As the world around them becomes increasingly uncertain, Etienne and Paul reflect on what binds them together.
A diary in the context of the global pandemic in which sentimental venting and uncertainty are woven into a visionary poetic tale. Olivier Assayas composes an intimate elegy on family ties that does not leave out the absurd humor of the everyday.
