Free-spirited Babou (Huppert) never held down a steady job and raised her daughter Esmeralda (Lolita Chammah) while moving from country to country living a responsibility-free life. Now grown up, the demure Esmeralda is about to marry her clean-cut boyfriend (Joachim Lombard) but refuses to invite mum to the wedding. Hurt, Babou decides to make some life changes and sets out to prove she has the old-fashioned motherly chops her daughter wants. So she moves to the Belgian seaside and accepts a real estate job in the highly competitive time-share apartment market. There she faces a fierce rival in fellow real estate agent Irene (Chantal Banlier).Hide
