THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN tells the love story between Elise and Didier. She has her own tattoo shop, he plays the banjo in a band. It is love at first sight, in spite of major differences. He talks, she listens. He is a dedicated atheist, although at the same time a naïve romantic. She has a cross tattooed on her neck, even though she has both feet firmly on the ground. Their happiness is complete after their little girl Maybelle is born. However, the family is devastated when, at six year-old, Maybelle becomes gravely ill. Didier and Elise respond in very different ways. But Maybelle does not leave them any choice. Didier and Elise have to fight for her together. Is love enough to get a couple through something so difficult? Or does love let a couple down when they need it most? THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN is an intense melodrama, full of passion and music. About how love can conquer fate, and sometimes not.
