Claire is a young 17- year-old orphan who lives with Maurice, an old composer and former member of the resistance. Strange as it may seem, they are in fact, granddaughter and grandfather; two very different generations forced, by chance, to live under the same roof. Clare constantly avoids running into her grandfather, hiding in the nooks and crannies of the big old house, immersed in her swimming competitions and her adolescent problems, rebelling against anything that might stop her living her life the way she wants to. The two characters are very different, and yet they bear some resemblances. They are rebels in their own ways, only that one of them lives with the ghosts of the past that haunt a man at the end of his path, and the other lives the impatience of one who has hardly begun her journey.

In 2001 he worked as an assistant director and directed the series Le temps d'un tournage for French television. Histoire naturelle (2003), his second short film, won the Jury Grand Prix at the Angers Festival.
