A young film director returns to her family village after a terrorist alert was triggered. As she films the power dynamics of her family members, she comes to understand that they are more connected to this event than she originally thought. Through the making of a short documentary, she becomes closer to her dad Patrick (62) and her cousin Faustine (17), who share the same dream: leaving the village.
