Having just published her autobiography, actress Fabienne Daugeville receives a visit from her daughter Lumir, who is disappointed that her mother did not send her an advance copy of the manuscript, which furthermore is full of inaccuracies if not outright lies. The mother-daughter interaction awakens memories that are not always positive, not to mention unresolved conflicts.
