Description: A beautiful old farm in Belgium is home to Pascale and her twin sons Thierry and François . Although loving and ostensibly supportive of one another, each is still reeling from the divorce that divided the family some years earlier. Now in their late teens, the boys, to some extent, have begun to move in different directions. Thierry has chosen to continue his studies by enrolling in a local university, but François' passion remains in his incessant renovation of the family house. The two of them continue to rely on their father for money and neither one cares to leave behind the stability they have at home with Pascale. In between her fulltime job, Pascale lovingly cares for both the boys and her home, but she's also fallen in love again and is beginning to dream of a new life for herself--one that she hopes will whisk her and her lover away to a countryside B&B that they aspire to own together. But, what would seemingly be a happy time in her life takes a turn for the worse as she finds herself unable to rise from the shadow of her ex-husband and stingy children. In a bid for survival, Pascale leaves the house in the hands of Thierry and François, never suspecting that in her absence a fratricidal war would change their family forever.
