In the midst of a quarantine, Fred buys Tiki, a puppy, to help bring a little joy to his familys life in isolation. What no one anticipated is that Tiki would turn their lives completely upside-down. During the pandemic, Fred, his girlfriend Sophie, and his daughter Lou seek a little comfort in the shape of a Shiba puppy named Tiki. But in the course of a single week, the adorable little furball manages to shatter everything in Freds life: the comfort, the certainties, the links, the balances. In doing so, however, she manages to bring to light what truly matters: family. Alternately humorous and tragic, this fictionalized autobiographical story questions that moment we decide to adopt a pet and the beautiful mess that were often left with.
