Louis is a terminally ill writer who has come home after 12 years of absence to tell his family he is dying. Its the proverbial prodigals return, except that Louis family is not so ready to forgive him for his desertion. His arrival precipitates chaos. His mother Martine has tried to keep her family together despite their struggles in the wake of Louis' departure, and his loud, tempestuous siblings Antoine and Suzanne and introverted sister-in-law Catherine have their own crosses and grudges to bear.
