Fred buys Tiki, a puppy, to help bring a little joy to his family's life in isolation. What no one anticipated is that Tiki would turn their lives completely upside down.
During the lockdown of November 2020, Fred, his girlfriend Sophie, and his daughter Lou seek a little comfort in the shape of a Shiba puppy named Tiki. But in the course of a single week, the adorable little furball manages to shatter everything in Fred's life: the comfort, the certainties, the links, the balances. In doing so, however, she manages to bring to light what truly matters: family.
With humor and sincerity, this fictionalized autobiographical story questions that moment we decide to adopt a pet, and the beautiful mess that we're often left with.
