Contrariété d’un gaucher
A young woman’s descent into hell as she is caught in the vice of a marriage whose appearance is deceiving. Scorned love, lies, pressure… A behind-closed-doors family affair where manipulation reigns supreme…
Aged 25, Anna falls madly in love with Jésus, a brilliant academic recently wheelchair-bound following an accident. For both of them it’s love at first sight, and they get married only a few months later… The young woman is committed, despite the reservations of her family and friends. She believes that anything is possible, including making the most of her love despite her daily struggles.
Fifteen years later, Jésus has become a tyrant and authoritarian, particularly with Sam, their young 8-year-old son. Anna also suffers from the presence of her invasive mother-in-law, who further disrupts the balance of their relationship.
Her encounter with Gabrielle, a seductive bookseller, gives her the strength she needs to leave Jésus and take Sam with her. But Jésus is not going to make things easy for her. Quite the contrary.

Magdalena realizes that she won’t be able to continue to keep the secret that she’s been holding onto for 42 years. Bastian travels to Spain with his sister in an attempt to get some answers.
