A man comes to pick up his son at his ex-wife’s house, just like every weekend. As always, he waits at the entrance of her apartment building for his son to come down stairs. But this Saturday, it takes a little longer. Their son wants to finish watching a TV show. And so it happens that the separated couple starts to talk again – via the intercom. Suddenly the former intimacy is back, the conversation almost turns into a flirt...The most painful thing about a separation is the fact that you remain so close to each other.
