♦ Description : “Louise? How lucky you have been on her. She was like a second mother for my boys. It was a real heartbreak when we had to separate. To be honest, at the time, I even thought of having a third child to be able to keep it. “When Myriam decides despite her husband’s reluctance to resume her activity in a law firm, the couple is looking for a nanny. After a severe casting, they engage Louise and are conquered by her ease with Mila and Adam, and by the care soon indispensable that it brings to their home, letting gradually settle the trap of mutual dependence.”
