A demanding and passionate winemaker, Paul is also a domineering and manipulative father, not happy that his son, who works for him on the family estate, may one day succeed him.
Paul dreams of a more talented and charismatic heir, more in line with his own fantasies. Things deteriorate as the health of Paul’s trusted estate manager (Patrick Chesnais) takes a turn for the worse after his own brilliant son, Philip (Nicolas Bridet), a winemaker as well, returns from California. Not before long, Paul starts seeing Philip as his ideal son and turns away from his own flesh and blood.

One of the most acclaimed French film, stage and television actors, Niels Arestrup has won two Césars  for his work in Jacques Audiard's A Prophet and The Beat That My Heart Skipped, as well as the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actor for A Prophet. He appeared in films by Alain Resnais, Chantal Akerman, Marco Ferreri, Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) as well as Steven Spielberg (War Horse) and is currently filming the new film by Bertrand Tavernier.
