1942 – Leon, 10 years old, and his little brother are in hiding in Brussels, the beginning of an endless journey. In 1946, renamed Leo (having lost the N in his name along with his parents) en même temps que ses parents), he, like so many others, is "a child without a shadow").
2009 - Mickaël, his grandson, age 17, starts to do a number as a stand-up comic, but the weight of his family history turns the show into something else. The play, delving into the transmission of one family's story, shifts back and forth between past and present, covering the lives of three generations.
