The debut feature of photojournalist Édouard Bergeon, the film is a deeply personal one. It tells the story of Pierre (portrayed in a superb, career-best performance by Guillaume Canet), who returns from Wyoming to the Mayenne district of France in the late 70s to marry his sweetheart and take over his imperious father’s farm. The couple have two children and, for many years, life is good. But the business is soon placed under enormous pressure, and what was once satisfying begins to take an insidious toll on the family.
