Baby Théo (temporary name) is given up for adoption on the day of his birth by his biological mother who has two months to change her mind ...or not. This is called birth under X (accouchement sous X) where the mother can do so without identifying herself. Doctors, nurses, social workers, psychiatrists and potential parents all come into play as we follow the child over a three-month period, during which he first lands in the very safe hands of a burly social worker (Gilles Lelouche) while other case workers are tasked with finding him a family among all the candidates who have been waiting sometimes for as long as nine years.
Seven nominations at the 2019 César Awards.
