Raphael – un giovane scrittore di successo, ora in crisi creativa, e ragazzo padre – da sei mesi ha una relazione con Anna. Anna è bella, dolce, intelligente, eppure nasconde qualcosa. Durante un weekend d’amore in Costa Azzurra, a sole tre settimane dal loro matrimonio, Raphael non riesce a trattenersi e, con insistenza, chiede ad Anna dettagli sul suo passato. Anna, esasperata, mostra a Raphael un’immagine dalla galleria fotografica del suo tablet, urlando: “Vedi questo? L’ho fatto io.” Raphael inorridisce alla vista di quella immagine e fugge via. Un gesto di cui subito si pente. Ma al suo ritorno, Anna non è più lì. Raphael la cerca sul cellulare, che risulta spento. Torna a Parigi, dove spera di ritrovarla, ma Anna non è a Parigi. Raphael la ama, è pronto a perdonarle tutto. Ma deve ritrovarla. Chiede aiuto a un suo amico, ex poliziotto, Marc Caradec. Insieme perquisiscono la casa di Anna, ma il buio diventa ancora più profondo, e il mistero sempre più denso: nell’appartamento trovano 400.000 euro in contanti e due carte di identità false. Dunque Anna, forse, non è Anna; e le reticenze della donna sulla propria vita non erano senza motivi; e quell’immagine, spaventosa, rimane, per Raphael, una delle poche tracce da seguire per scoprire la verità sulla persona che ama.

Yet their mother’s depression and Grace’s religious fervor threaten the seemingly perfect family, whose world is upended when Grace returns from a missionary trip to Mexico and discovers she’s pregnant with—she believes—the child of God. Distraught, Oren sends Jory and Grace to an isolated home at the edge of the town. There, they prepare for the much-awaited arrival of the baby while building a makeshift family that includes an elderly eccentric neighbor and a tattooed social outcast who drives an ice cream truck.
