The intense love story between Elise and Didier. She runs her own tattoo shop and he is a Flemish cowboy playing the banjo in a small band. It's love at first sight for them… although they are poles apart. Chalk and cheese, completely different and yet perfectly compatible. When their daughter Maybelle is born, their happiness is complete. Then tragedy strikes and Maybelle dies. Didier loses himself in anger and Elise seeks comfort.

Felix van Groeningen (b. 1977, in Gent, Belgium) completed his studies at KASK in Gent in 2002 with a masters in visual arts. This was followed by a number of short films; he also wrote and directed theatre plays whilst working as an actor. Eventually deciding to return to film, he has since made three feature films with producer Dirk Impens.
