After the terrible January 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince, an intellectual bourgeois couple struggles to reinvent a life amid the rubbles of their luxurious home. Needing money to survive, the couple decides to rent the remaining habitable part of the villa to Alex, a high-level foreign relief worker. He brings with him in the house Andrémise, an ambitious 17-year-old Haitian girl of modest background. Now the couple, strained by the loss of their social position, their ideals, their dreams and their desires, must face this toxic intrusion.
