Fatherhood is a commitment that worries Max. Abused as a child, he has never known love and does not know what a family is, nor how he should love his child.
Two people love each other and their loneliness are magnetized. It sounds like a simple and luminous love story, but it is without counting on the shadows that Max hides behind his silences ...
Max is rather introverted and highly sensitive though, and somewhat distant too, even with his colleagues on building sites. When Halley finds out she is pregnant, they decide to get married.
