Synopsis

Everyone thinks they know Simon. His mother, Valerie, sees her son as a responsible, prominent doctor in France. Despite a few rough patches due to his sexuality, when she does not hear from Simon for a week, she knows something is wrong. After the police prove to be no help, Valerie calls someone she never would have reached out to otherwise--Simon's ex boyfriend, Jens. Amused by Valerie's concerns, Jens flies to France to help her find him, though he is pretty sure that Simon is just off having a good time. After visiting his apartment and talking to his colleagues, they slowly start to put together the pieces of Simon's recent activities. These appear to include a possible addiction to tranquilizers, extravagant purchases and surprising sexual encounters. Both Valerie and Jens start to realize that there are plenty of secrets that Simon has not shared with either of them. This unlikely duo begin to cling to each other as they question their own relationships with Simon and eventually question themselves.
