French director Safy Nebbou takes the helm of the French-language psychological thriller about crazed maternal obsession. Elsa (Catherine Frot) is fighting to keep custody of her son Thomas (Arthur Vaughan-Whitehead). One day, at a children’s birthday party, she notices a little six-year-old girl, Lola, and becomes convinced she is the daughter she lost during a fire on the maternity ward. Obsessed by this intuition, she manipulatively inches her way into Lola’s life. Claire (Sandrine Bonnaire), Lola’s mother, allows a friendship to develop, yet gradually she becomes aware and fearful of Elsa’s unnatural behaviour and an intense psychological face-off between two women ensues.
