From renowned director Claire Denis comes this beautifully observed and emotionally vibrant father and daughter relationship drama which captures the warmth and easy going love between family and close friends, drawing perfectly nuanced and sensitive, truthful performances from all of her cast.

Lionel is a train driver. A widower, he has brought up his only daughter Joséphine since she was very small. Today, she’s a young woman. They live side by side, living in each other’s pockets, in a protective cocoon from the outside world. For Lionel, everything in his life revolves around his daughter and for Joséphine, her world is her father. Little by little, Lionel realises that time has passed and perhaps the time has come for them both to move on and find their independence.
