'We looked like the perfect young family, something out of a magazine, in shades of marshmallow pink....'

A photograph. The father smiling beside his new car, the mother pregnant and radiant, the little girl placing cuddly toys in the cot for her new baby brother. All we see is the happiness.

'We don't see my mother. We don't see the lies.'

But behind every picture there is a story. And behind that story, there are others. Every family has its secrets.

When Antoine was young, he believed in love at first sight. He finds the woman of his dreams, Nathalie, and has two children. But when Antoine's life implodes, he does something unspeakable.

Antoine's journey to come to terms with what he has done will take him across seas and continents, deep into his own heart and the hearts of others. Because in order to find true happiness, you have to know where to look.
