When Halley meets Max for the first time, it is here in this bar where Olivier, her best childhood friend, has organized a small party for her for her 30th birthday. But Halley catches the eye of a stranger.
Max is rather introverted and highly sensitive though, and somewhat distant too, even with his colleagues on building sites. When Halley finds out she is pregnant, they decide to get married.
Fatherhood is a commitment that worries Max. Placed in a foster family at a very young age, he has never known love and does not know what a family is, nor how he should love his child.
The birth of little Rosie will be the start of Max’s descent into hell, caught up in the whirlwind of unconditional and boundless fatherly love.
