Lionel works as a RER (Paris suburban train) driver. He has been raising his daughter Joséphine, as a single parent, and now, she is a young woman. They live side by side, almost like a couple, refusing to commit in outside relationships and get involved with others’ problems. For Lionel, the only person that counts is his daughter. And reciprocally. But progressively, Lionel starts realizing that time went by, even for them. Maybe it is time to go their own ways...
