Lyes is ripped away from Emilie, the foster mother who’d raised him since he was a baby and hoped to adopt him. The little boy gets thrown into the violent world of group homes run by the Child Welfare System, which doesn’t want to cut his tie with his biological mother, even though she’s incapable of taking care of him. Agathe, Emilie’s sister, refuses to give up on Lyes, fighting the system to preserve their bond by petitioning to take him into her own home, to help him heal and grow.
