Ten days in Romy's life, a thirty-six-years-old woman. A few months earlier, her mother broke up with her. Since then, Romy has no news from her. This absence forms the pattern of Romy's life. Ten days of a legal and administrative marathon, that turns obsessional, to get a mother back; a mother who does not even want to be one. Ten days for a transformation: a girl who becomes a woman, a woman who finally understands that someone's happiness cannot be made despite oneself, and certainly not despite her own mother.
