Mauvaise foi

Ismaël and Clara have been a happy young couple for almost four years. Together, they share only the best in life. Each one lives separately and leads their own little life. Ismaël, a music teacher, takes life as it comes. He hates being in the limelight, taking decisions or standing out from the crowd. It could be said of him that he is a follower, not a decider. For her part, Clara loves Ismaël the way he is. She works in a medical centre for accident victims as an occupational therapist. Like her parents say, Clara has character. She doesn't like being told which way to go. One morning, Clara discovers that she is pregnant with Ismaël's baby. It's the most beautiful thing that could happen to them.Unfortunately, nothing is quite so simple... First of all they will have to make their union official by going to the parents. While Ismaël very soon understands that the "pill" is not going to be easy for his Muslim family to swallow, Clara will be a little stunned. She thought her parents, Ashkenazi Jews, were open and modern... But she is going to discover that they are not at all prepared to welcome a son-in-law who is an Arab. The most beautiful day of their lives is about the turn into a nightmare for both of them.
