Synopsis

Rachel is 40 years old, no children. She loves her life: her high school students, her friends, her ex, her guitar lessons. When she falls in love with Ali, she becomes attached to Leila, his 4-year-old daughter. She tucks her to bed, cares for her, loves her like her own. But to love other people’s children is risky.

Director’s Statement

A childless 40-year-old woman falls in love with a single father. As she tries to find a place in his family she becomes aware of her own desire to start her own. Traditionally a secondary character, sometimes just an extra, she must fade away with their love affair. Why has this woman, living through a seemingly common experience—one I have myself lived through—never been a cinematic heroine? With Les enfants des autres I wanted to simply make the film I needed to see, thinking that perhaps others might need to see it too.
