Damien is a professor of Japanese civilization. Just now he has a problem: he has promised Iva, his life companion, to ask his father Sebastien, a state councilor, to intervene in favor of Zorica, an illegal alien.
In theory, Sebastien Hauer is influential enough to keep Zorica from being expelled from France but the trouble is that he has always despised his son. As for Damien, he hates his old man. It looks as if Zorica is not on track to stay in the country for much longer.
