Summary

On the eve of an important swimming contest, twelve-year-old Marie does an unpleasant discovery in the changing room. When the same evening her young mother brings home a new boyfriend, Marie stands alone and questions remain unanswered.

Curious but also sad and destructive, Marie tries to fit herself into the changes she goes through. When Marie frenetically tries to win back her mother by claiming a deadly disease, the distance between them only gets bigger and communication seems impossible.

Entangled in a realm of thought, Marie tries to preserve control by the rules of a board game and silently finds solace in an old videotape of her mother.
