Supported by their mother's inheritance, Ysé, a young woman suffering from social anxiety, and Simon, her narcoleptic brother, are stuck in a relationship of interdependence and lead a life of idleness, devoid of meaning and bearings. On her 21st birthday, when she finally has access to her share of the inheritance, Ysé learns that an additional clause is in the will: to do forty hours of volunteer work at the Centre Béatrice-Caron, an eponymous organization founded by their mother. This ordeal will push the young woman to face her anxieties, her mourning and to question her way of life. Ultimately, she will have to choose between the toxicity of comfort or emancipation.
Soutenus par l’héritage de leur mère, Ysé, une jeune femme souffrant d’anxiété sociale et Simon, son frère narcoleptique, sont englués dans une relation d’interdépendance et mènent une vie d’oisiveté, dénuée de sens et de repères. Le jour de ses 21 ans, lorsqu’elle a enfin accès à sa part d'héritage, Ysé apprend qu'une clause additionnelle se trouve sur le testament : effectuer quarante heures de bénévolat au Centre Béatrice-Caron, organisme éponyme fondé par leur mère. Cette épreuve poussera la jeune femme à affronter ses angoisses, son deuil et à remettre en question sa façon de vivre. Ultimement, elle devra choisir entre le confort toxique ou l'émancipation.
