Khédidja (Aïssatou Diallo Sagna) has returned to Corsica where she worked some fifteen years ago to take up a summer childminding job for wealthy Parisian couple Sylvia (Virginie Ledoyen) and Marc (Denis Podalydès). She has brought her daughters, eighteen year-old Jessica (Suzy Bemba), who forms an intense bond with Gaia (Lomane de Dietrich), the headstrong daughter of her mum’s employers, and fifteen-year-old Farah (Esther Gohourou), a rebel who tangles with aggressive local boy Orso (Harold Orsini) with unexpected consequences. Meanwhile, questions begin to surface about their mother’s past life on the island, leading the girls to dig deeper into Khédidja’s version of their family story.
