Even though his father Jacques has a severe form of Parkinson’s, Julian conducts a happy life in the company of his friends. He has recently been accepted at the conservatory and is considering moving into a student dormitory.

To prevent his father from having to go to a nursing home facility, Julian does everything he can. But how long can he keep it up for?
