 In the cold waters of the North Sea, Leon Broucke falls overboard from his fishing boat in front of his eldest son, Jean. The old man slips into a deep coma, leaving Jean with a huge debt and responsibility for the family business. The absence of his father sets off an aftershock of conflicts between him and his two brothers: Francis is torn between his family and leaving with his secret lover; while William returns home to escape his life of crime and redeem himself. Desperate to build a future for his eight-year-old son, Jean turns to his brother’s criminal past.
