A brisk, engagingly written family mosaic about three siblings and the desire to live your own life in spite of the darkness.
While travelling on the subway, the main protagonist Marie witnesses the suicide of a young girl. This tragic event forces her to consider her own chaotic life, relationships and darkness. To the rhythmic rumble of the train, scenes appear from the past, and these tragic, as well as occasionally comic fragments, are gradually pieced together to form the story of her family and two siblings. No matter how much Marie’s life is filled with tragedy, depression and suicidal thoughts, there is also humour (albeit cynical) and a forthright look at relationships and love.
