Catherine Frot plays Claire, a midwife in a maternity hospital, who is suddenly imposed upon by her deceased father’s mistress (played by Catherine Deneuve), who needs a care aide. With dignity and sensitivity Claire does her best to handle this event in her life. Both actresses create a chemistry on screen and a relationship that is a perfect vehicle for themes of forgiveness, love and redemption.
