Introduction

Parisian architect Antoine Rey and his sister, Melanie, celebrate her 40th birthday on the island where they vacationed as children with their mother, until she died there in 1974. Upon returning, Melanie is gripped by a shocking repressed memory and loses control of the car. After a brief spell of amnesia, she tells her brother what it was she remembered: their mother had been in love with a woman. As a skeptical Antoine investigates this twist in their mother's past while he falls in the middle of an upsetting chain of events.Spanish Description: Antoine Rey no deja de darle vueltas a los ultimos y dramaticos acontecimientos que le han sucedido: su divorcio, el vacio que le produce su trabajo, el alejamiento de sus hijos… Todo su futuro se ha desvanecido, y ya solo le queda el pasado. Por esta razon, aunque de forma un poco inconsciente, regala a su hermana Melanie por su cuarenta cumpleanos un viaje al lugar donde pasaban las vacaciones en su ninez, Noirmoutier. Un lugar que ha quedado impregnado de sensaciones y recuerdos, de vivencias, de personas que ya no estan, como su madre… Una inmersion inmediata en un viaje a traves del tiempo cuyas consecuencias en ningun caso habrian podido imaginar. Un flashback inesperado y perturbador sorprende a Melanie y Antoine en el camino de vuelta de las vacaciones, pero un accidente fatal deja sepultado un complejo secreto que habia estado anos intentando abrirse camino. Sin embargo, los secretos de familia siempre vuelven… para quedarse.
