Description: Rosa, a young pianist, waits for Capucine, her student, sitting at the ivory and ebony of her piano. But the child has better things to do and takes her time. As the minutes of waiting go by, Rosa plunges more deeply into herself, dragging us into her whirlpool of thoughts, meandering through moment of anguish and maternal relationships and the abysses of questioning and lack of self-confidence. She wants, above all, upon her return to live in Guadeloupe, to break old patterns that bind her as tightly to her mother as to her complexes.
