As soon as she gets to the Gare Montparnasse, things start to go wrong
for Lena: she loses her son Anton and just misses her train. On arriving
in Brittany, she discovers that her parents and sister are plotting
together for her good and have summoned her ex-husband, Nigel. She feels
betrayed, humiliated and disgusted. Should she leave or stay? The ghosts
of duty, social judgement and family order band together to prevent her
from living, loving and thinking, from simply being herself.
