Synopsis

After testing to see if she had inherited her father’s neurodegenerative disease, Arlet did not dare return home. However, almost four months later, she is forced to return to spend a weekend with her family and celebrate her twentieth birthday. The reunion with her past, with her brothers and, above all, with the delicate state of health of her father, turns what could have been a weekend of celebration into a process of struggle and personal acceptance to learn to living with the ghost of a disease that has haunted them for years: the time has come to make a decision.
