A single mother in Paris, Bernadette tried hard to give her daughters everything. She is thrilled when her eldest, Elza, the first college graduate in the family, completes her master's degree. However, Elza breaks her mother's heart by running away to their native Guadeloupe in search of a distant childhood memory: the father she barely remembers.

This feature debut by writer/director Mariette Monpierre offers an unusual insider's view of one aspect of Caribbean culture as she captures the passions and contradictions of this intriguing family.

The title of the film roughly translates as “Elza’s happiness”.
