Short synopsis : On the run from a children's home, pursued by care workers, 11-year-old Cyril seeks refuge in the arms of a young woman…

Long synopsis : Cyril, almost 12, has only one plan: to find the father who left him temporarily in a children’s home. By chance he meets Samantha, who runs a hairdressing salon and agrees to let him stay with her at weekends. Cyril doesn’t recognize the love Samantha feels for him, a love he desperately needs to calm his rage.
