The portrait of a discreet man, of a workman. Director Marc Coton’s portrait of his father. A steelworker in a Belgian factory, he does not talk about his work at home.
The pride of the worker, the hard work in a noisy place, social divide between generations. The echo of a warm silence, which has screened off his family from the racket of the steel industry, where he has been working for 30 years. The story of an uncompleted inheritance, of a silence promise: « My son, you’ll become a different man ». The film leads to reconciliation achieved through the years, through daily acts.
