After the death of the young woman he's been hosting for more than a year, a fifty-year-old man finds himself alone with a little two-year-old boy, Lino.
Seen from the outside, the relationship between the man and the boy seems like a real father-son relationship. Lino has in fact only known one "father" and calls this man, "Dad." In return, the man behaves with this child the way that a father would. He also seems to love him like a father.
However, the man has a sole obsession: to give Lino back to his true family. But who is his family? Who can he give Lino back to? To this vaguely has-been actor? To this guy who seems nice enough and yet who savagely pounds at punching bags? To this wounded, deserted grandfather mechanic?
From camembert massacre to bucolic escapade, spectacular umbrella bed escape to backstage holdup, Lino accompanies his "Dad" in the search for the real father he's never known.
