‘’…delicate…Intelligently observed and backed by a strong cast…”

Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reported

When baby Theo’s birth mother surrenders him to adoption, she has 2 months to change her mind. During this time 2-day-old is entrusted to Jean (Gilles Lellouche, C’est la vie!), his initial foster parent, while his case primary worker Karine (Sandrine Kiberlain, Violette ) and her team monitor his wellbeing as they search for potential parents for the little boy.

Their collective drive to ensure the infant has a secure future is at the heart of the film, as we gain various levels of insights into their relationships and struggles; both personal and professional.




A warm, human drama about the adoption system in France and the people it touches.

‘’Herry’s watchful style….. (and) discreetly fragmented structure….establishes the momentousness of the transition period between a child being given up and adopted.’’  Phil Hoad, The Guardian
