Everything changes when the father of her son surfaces in Marseilles. He had left Vanda 7 years earlier, not knowing that she was pregnant. When Simon demands custody of his son, Vanda’s suppressed rage threatens to explode. The tension becomes unbearable, both parents fully capable of extreme violence.
