One morning, a strange parcel disrupts Maia’s well organized life. Inside it are the numerous notebooks she exchanged, between 1982 and 1988, with her best friend at the time, Carine, who was forced to leave Lebanon. Maia is reluctant to open this Pandora box with its painful past. But her 13 year-old daughter, Alex, secretly delves into it and gets lost into her mother’s teenage years.
