Synopsis

During a fishing trip in the North Sea, elderly Jean Broucke is knocked overboard; he almost drowns and falls into a coma. His oldest son Jean witnessed the scene and now the family affairs and a huge debt rest on his shoulders. Plus, with the father’s absence, old unresolved conflicts resurface between Jean and his two brothers, Francis and William. Francis doesn’t know whether to remain and help his family or run away in pursuit of a secret love; William returns home, escaping from a criminal past and in search of redemption. Jean turns to William and his knowledge of the criminal world in a desperate attempt to ensure a future for his eight-year-old son.
