Gradually succumbing to dementia, George Laurent (Jean Louis Trintignant), the octogenarian patriarch of the Laurents, an affluent upper-bourgeois family, is uncomfortable sharing his palatial manor in Calais, the heart of the infamous migrant jungle, with his twice married son, Thomas (Mathieu Kassovitz), and Anne (Isabelle Huppert), his workaholic daughter who has taken over the family construction business.  Anne has to handle the impact of a disastrous workplace accident caused by her disappointing son Pierre's (Franz Rogowski) negligence, while at the same time, the urgent hospitalization of Thomas' ex-wife from a mysterious poisoning, leads his sulky 13 year old daughter, Eve (Fantine Harduin), to live with her father and his new wife, Anais (Laura Verlinden).  Undoubtedly, in this family, everyone has a skeleton in the closet, and as the fates of the Laurents enmesh with insistent and ignoble desires, a peculiar and disturbing alliance will form.  But in the end, some secrets are bigger than others.  In French with English subtitles
