The Italian widow Bertille decides to sell her real estate in Loiret in the countryside of France and organizes a family lunch party. Bertille wishes to split the money among her sons and daughters to avoid any future struggle in the hand down. She will move with her dog to the house of her daughter Christiane and she asks to her family to take souvenirs from the house to recall their childhood. Along the day of a typical Latin family reunion, there are arguments, gossips and critics. Christiane does not understand why her mother spent a large amount to advertise the selling of the property in more than thirty newspapers for a long period. In the end of the day, Bertille overhears a whistle and goes to a small cave in the top of the real estate. There she meets her beloved youngest son Raphaël, who participated in a heist where a person was killed, and now let her go in peace. Written by
