Philippe is eighty years old and lives alone in a mansion surrounded by a big garden. It’s a place from another era. He likes it there. It’s home. But not for long. His children have put the house up for sale and soon he’ll be forced to move out. Real estate developers are planning to tear it down and build a housing complex instead. When the time comes to sign the deal, Philippe refuses to go the notary. His eldest son insists, there’s a lot of money at stake. But Philippe is adamant: he won’t sell the house! His two daughters rush over one after the other, but their father doesn’t waver. He won’t sign anything until his youngest son Augustin comes back. His children are dumbfounded and for a good reason: Augustin disappeared twenty years ago.
