Synopsis

Myriam and Antoine Besson have divorced, and Myriam seeks sole custody of their 12 year-old son Julien to protect him from a father she claims is violent and abusive. Antoine effectively pleads his case as a scorned man and the appointed judge rules in favor of joint custody. But his disturbed father really does have ulterior motives to regain control of his traumatized ex-wife’s life, and Julien is held hostage to the escalating conflict between his parents. The boy is pushed to the edge to prevent the worst possible outcome.
