The story of three half-sisters and a half-brother who don't know each other. All were brought up by their respective mothers and grandparents. All were recognized by their father, who then disappeared never to return. They never met him. Time passed... When the story begins, the father, Julius Mandenne, is aged 65 and on trial for murder. The children meet for the first time at the trial. They discover one another. They all come from different backgrounds and have all dealt with being fatherless in different ways. And yet, confronting this mystery father brings them together into a family, that indefinable bond which is both a gift and a choice...
"I have always been intrigued by the idea of meetings in later life between people who are connected by blood but perhaps nothing else. It makes them watch each other and wonder : Do we have anything in common ? Must we love each other ? Will it change our lives ? This is my backbone, the story of the film. It is not about mistaken identity, it's about an over-scheduled meeting."
