When Claire learns that she is five months pregnant at the tender age of 17, she decides to give birth anonymously. She finds refuge with Madame Melikian, an embroiderer for haute couture designers. And, day by day, stitch by stitch, as Claire's belly grows rounder, the threads of embroidery create a filial bond between them.Written by

Claire is a young girl who got pregnant. She didn't want to abort the baby and didn't want her boyfriend to pay his responsibility. Instead, she quit her current job at a local supermarket and went to work for Mrs. Melikian, as her embroidery assistant. Mrs. Melikian just lost his only son from a motorcycle accident.
Claire showed her willingness in taking her duties, as well as taking over Mrs. Melikian's private order when she was treated in the hospital (Mrs. Melikian tried to suicide, feeling lost without his son).
I found this movie was a bit boring, as not many conflict arisen during the almost 1.5 hour running time. The Claire character wasn't convincing as a pregnant young woman, whose trying to prove that she'll carry the burden alone. However, the character Mrs. Melikian was superb.
