Elsa is fighting to keep custody of her son Thomas. One day, at a children’s birthday party, she notices a little 6-year-old girl. Immediately, she is convinced that Lola is the daughter she lost during a fire on the maternity ward. Obsessed by this uncontrollable feeling, she manipulatively inches her way into Lola’s life. Claire, Lola’s mother, allows a friendship to develop. Yet, gradually she becomes aware and fearful of Elsa’s unnatural behaviour to the point of insisting that she stop intruding in their lives. Elsa, seemingly crazy, challenges Claire by asking for DNA tests. The rivalry between the two mothers begins. An intense psychological face-off between two women who should never have met…
