Resolute Diane loves her 15-year old son Steve more than anything else, although he drives her crazy with his violent tantrums. Since the death of his father, Steve has been through a series of homes for difficult children. Then he comes back to his mother. His demands on the one hand to be the man of the house and his overpowering love on the other represent a real trial for Diane. She gets unexpected help in her efforts to come to terms with her destiny from her taciturn neighbour Kyla, who manages to create a balance in the mother-son relationship and nurture a seed of hope for a happier future. Another visually extravagant piece from Canadian Xavier Dolan.
