Middle-class, middle-aged Rose wonders whether she should leave her husband, a real-estate agent, who drinks too much. But she does too, doesn't she? And what about the renovations to their holiday house in the south where they're moving (a decent lifestyle in Paris is impossible now)? And then there's climate change to worry about.

When her mother offers her a Mediterranean cruise with her two children, Rose jumps at the chance to get away. But one night they come upon a shipwrecked boat full of refugees, who are taken aboard the cruise ship. Without telling her teenage son, Rose gives his mobile phone to a young Nigerian refugee. Does she want to be some kind of a hero, ease her conscience? Now what is she in for? The secret phone connection takes Rose on a journey of discovery-for her and her whole family.

With her trademark wit, wry humour and sensitivity, Darrieuseccq, like Rachel Cusk or Jenny Offill, shines a light on issues of individual responsibility in our complex world.
