Barbara (Louise Bourgoin), a young graduate student, is madly in love with her boyfriend Nicolas (Pio Marmai) and deep into writing her thesis when she learns she is pregnant. Reeling from the initial shock, Barbara alter­nates between excitement and trepidation. Amidst a flurry of congratulations, she tries in vain to conform to the image of the happy expectant mother, but is instead exasper­ated by the tedious yogic breathing classes, and finds herself complaining to her girl­friend about her suffering sex life.

Once her baby is born, everything becomes alarmingly real. She's faced with a helpless little being who needs everything from her—love most of all. But despite the support of those around her, including that of her devoted partner, Barbara struggles to con­nect with her child.
