EN - Boldly unconventional and cheerful, that's how one could describe Babou. Never having cared about social conventions, she is suddenly faced with the realisation that her own daughter is ashamed of her and therefore refuses to invite her to her wedding. Desperate to regain her daughter's respect, she accepts the challenge of selling time-share flats at the Belgian seaside during the off-season…

FR - Audacieusement non conventionnelle et joyeuse, voilà comment on pourrait décrire Babou.  N’ayant jamais prêté attention aux conventions sociales, elle est soudainement confrontée à la réalité. Sa propre fille a honte d’elle et refuse de l’inviter à son mariage. Blessée dans son estime, Babou essaie de regagner le respect de sa fille en prenant un nouveau départ. Elle accepte le défi de vendre son appartement qu’elle partage à la côte belge pendant la saison creuse, dans une tentative désespérée de prouver sa vraie valeur et son amour maternel à sa fille.
