Upon turning 50, divorced literature teacher Nathalie slowly devolves from an accomplished professional and loving mother into an irritable, narcissistic and jealous monster who detests the happiness and success of others around her. Beginning with her strikingly beautiful dancer daughter, Mathilde, Nathalie’s noxious envy soon extends to include her friends, colleagues and neighbours with far-reaching consequences. An acerbic and dark comedy about a complex middle-class woman re-assessing her life.
