Chanson douce


Louise ? Quelle chance vous avez d’être tombés sur elle. Elle a été comme une seconde mère pour mes garçons. Ça a été un vrai crève-cœur quand nous avons dû nous en séparer. Pour tout vous dire, à l’époque, j’ai même songé à faire un troisième enfant pour pouvoir la garder.»

Lorsque Myriam décide malgré les réticences de son mari de reprendre son activité au sein d’un cabinet d’avocats, le couple se met à la recherche d’une nounou. Après un casting sévère, ils engagent Louise et sont conquis par son aisance avec Mila et Adam, et par le soin bientôt indispensable qu’elle apporte à leur foyer, laissant progressivement s’installer le piège de la dépendance mutuelle.
