The six-part series draws the viewer into a woman’s frantic search for her missing husband - a woman whose strength, determination, sense of justice, but also humor and kindness, are the ingredients of an inspiring and truly endearing character. In a small town in Brittany, Gloria, a mother of three children, sees her life turned upside down when her husband goes to work one morning and never comes back. While she fights to discover the truth about his disappearance, she must face the suspicion of her in-laws and confront the police captain Marianne Volton who holds an old grudge against her. She will also find unexpected allies and, ultimately, discover her inner force.
