    It is 1931, and once again Europe is heading towards disaster. Life must go on however, and a new generation of the Neyler family are making their way in this turbulent world.

Louis' son Simon, meanwhile, has matured and is embarking on his first love affair. The family hope he’ll have more luck in love that his father.
