    Brief synopsis

    Delphine is the author of a highly personal novel devoted to her mother that has become a best-seller. Exhausted by countless requests and made fragile by her memories, Delphine is then tormented by anonymous letters accusing her of having thrown her family to the lions. ... She understands Delphine better than anyone. Delphine grows fond of Elle, confides in her, opens up. How far will Elle go after moving into the writer's apartment? Has she come to fill a void or to create one? To give her fresh impetus or to steal her life?
