Love changes everything and when it dies, the poison that remains is deadly in Belgian director Joachim Lafosse's unsettling character study. Polish carpenter and handyman Boris (Cedric Kahn) renovated the home he shares with his wife Marie (Berenice Bejo) and their twin daughters (Jade and Margaux Soentjens). Unfortunately, he doesn't make enough money to pay the bills, so Marie is forced to be the main breadwinner. The relationship breaks down after 15 years, but Boris doesn't have sufficient funds to rent a flat or move out, and he can't agree a financial settlement with Marie. So he is forced to retire to the sofa in the living room and abide by Marie's long list of rules while the couple attempts to conceal the pain of the break up from the children. Tensions slowly crank up as mutual friends are caught in the crossfire between the couple and Marie's meddlesome mother (Marthe Keller) insists on offering her advice where none is required.
