But behind the seemingly humdrum domesticity of their long life together lies a startling secret.
Following his sudden death, Mary discovers her husband has a teenage son, Solomon (Talid Ariss), and a girlfriend, Geneviève (Natalie Richard) 21 miles away, across the water in Calais.
Grappling with his duplicity, Mary sets out to confront the “other woman” on her doorstep.
But when Geneviève wrongly assumes she is a cleaner and invites her in, Mary instead finds herself thrust directly into the heart of the other family of the man she loved.
