The small seaside commune of Fouras is home to Claire Valent, a divorced mother of two now remarried to Paul, who has two kids of his own from a previous relationship. Claire shares custody of her teenage son, Raphäel, and daughter Lara with her ex, Marc, who lives on nearby Aix Island. Claire and Paul's families blend together well enough on the surface, but hidden tensions boil over when the lifeless body of a missing 15-year-old girl is found in a nearby swamp. A pair of missing sneakers leads Claire to suspect Raphäel might have had something to do with his classmate's killing. Unable to believe her own son could be capable of such a crime, Claire launches her own personal investigation into the murder, even enlisting her ex in the endeavor. But the deeper she digs, the more the evidence points to her son's guilt. —Happy_Evil_Dude
A tiresome melodrama. It takes more than a dead body and a few suspects to make a good mystery.
This is a slow-moving drama about a dysfunctional "blended" family--mother and second husband living with kids from their two respective marriages. In the opening scenes we learn of the death of a school girl. Is one of their sons a murderer? This question is asked over and over again in the most tiresome ways. The dialogue is repetitive and bland and the "investigation" hardly exists. Simple clues take forever to be analyzed, while most of the attention is focused on the mother's anguished, overwrought scenes. This film may strike a chord with superfans of the lead actress or mothers who worry their sons are killers. People who like murder mysteries will be bored. The film seems longer than it is.
