Fabienne wants to find out how, as a child, her friend Nathalie dealt with the deaths of her father and brother. She wants to understand what her children will soon be going through.
Nathalie’s memories of her father are ambivalent. He died of a heart attack when she was ten. Her brother was her hero. One day he disappeared into the forest never to return. Nathalie’s view of her childhood has turned into a solid story. This story however does not suffice to answer Fabienne’s questions.
The two friends embark on a journey into the world of memories and forgetting; Fabienne in preparation for her death and Nathalie in order to face life. A new story emerges, one upon which Fabienne has forever left her mark.
