Having suffered a tremendous loss, 17-year-old Rosie decides to make a fresh start. Taking a job as a nanny on a houseboat in Paris, she fills the void of loss with a new family. Almost immediately she lets the three children and their needy father, Marc, into her heart. As their relationship becomes increasingly intimate, Rosie soon discovers the secrets of the cold and detached mother, Nicole - whose demons are eerily similar to her own.
