Toni and Julie are best friends. When Julie's family starts breaking up right before the end of the school year, Julie compares her unstable crew with Toni's model family portrait. When Toni's dad has a heart attack and Toni has to live with her much older sister, Martine, in New York, this cold and indifferent relative starts telling family secrets that cause Toni to start to wonder just how well she knows her parents. Are they living a total lie?
