Evelyne has to fly to London unexpectedly to go to her mother's funeral. But, as she is about to embark, she can't find her newborn baby' ID... This is the beginning of a long day's struggle, as gruelling as it is absurd, against the unbending rules of administration. Until she comes across Stephanie, a young ground hostess, who's used to obeying orders automatically. Still, at the sight of this powerless young mother confronted by bureaucracy, Stephanie discovers what means most to her: her humanity and her will to fight. Grounded" tells the story of these two women whose paths just happen to cross
