Captain on a container-ship, Marco Silvestri is called urgently back to Paris. His sister, Sandra, is desperate… her husband has committed suicide, the family business has gone under, her daughter has gone adrift. Sandra deems Edouard Laporte, a powerful businessman, responsible. Marco moves into the building where Raphaëlle, Laporte’s mistress lives with the couple's son. What Marco hadn’t foreseen are Sandra’s twisted, secret manœuvres… and his love for Raphaëlle that could ruin everything.
