"Bercot is heartbreaking, and Cassel has never been better... it's clear that Maïwenn has something to say - and a clear, strong style with which to express it."
– Peter Debruge, Variety

Synopsis:  Admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious ski accident, Tony (Emmanuelle Bercot) becomes dependent on the medical staff and pain relievers while looking back on a turbulent relationship she experienced with megalomaniac Georgio (Vincent Cassel). Who is this man that she loved so deeply, and how did she allow herself to submit to this suffocating and destructive passion? For Tony, the physical work of healing may finally set her free.
