Recently divorced Bénédicte Marceau decides to move back to Nantes, her hometown, with her daughter Rose. But painful memories await her there… When Ben was just 16, her Jehovah’s Witness parents forced her to give up her newborn son. A decision that drove Ben to run away. Her son’s existence is a secret that Ben kept from everyone else in her life. In Nantes, Ben hopes to find a fresh start and to build a new life for herself with the help of her childhood friends, her daughter and her job as a reporter covering criminal cases. But she’s not one to simply pass along official statements. She likes to do her own investigation, out in the field. An attitude that soon catches the attention of Laurent Wagner, the local police captain.
