NON MA FILLE, TU N’IRAS PAS DANSER

NON MA FILLE, TU N’IRAS PAS DANSER

As soon as she gets to Montparnasse train station, things start to go wrong for Léna : she loses her son Anton, just misses her train and in her bag, the baby magpie that her daughter Augustine wanted to save is slowly dying. On arriving in Brittany, she discovers that her family are conspiring to do her ‘good’ and have invited her ex-husband, Nigel.  She feels betrayed, humiliated and disgusted.  Her limited self-confidence begins to evaporate. The ghosts of duty, social judge¬ment and family band together to prevent her from living, loving and thinking, from simply being herself. Should she leave or stay? Send everything packing?
