In the aftermath of the November 13 attacks, a psychoanalyst receives five patients. Through their sessions, the series probes the flaws of a society in shock.
Camille, 16, is a young, high-performance swimmer training for the Olympic Games. She shows up at Dayan's office following a bicycle accident, both arms in a cast. Her insurance calls for a psychological expert testifying that she is not responsible for what happened to her.
Arriving alone, Damien explains to Dayan that they have decided with Leonora to separate and end their therapy. Léonora, who joins them, emphasizes that she considers it a failure. Dayan is trying to calm the situation down.
Dayan is no expert in couples therapy, but he agreed to see Damien and Léonora, who have lived together for ten years. Recently, Léonora got pregnant after the couple had given up on having a second child. The crisis they are going through seems insurmountable. They expect Dayan to help them make a decision about this unborn child ... or to make it for them.Watch Now:iTunes
At his controller, Dayan immediately talks about Adel’s father's visit to his office and his guilt, idealizes this patient who has become a hero to him, and then becomes uneasy. Coming to his senses, Dayan attacks Esther until she loses her footing.
Camille seems worried that this third session will put an end to her meetings with Dayan. She talks about her parents' divorce and then makes important revelations about her relationship with Nicolas, her trainer. Dayan still refuses to comment on the premeditated nature or not of his accident, which annoys the young girl.
Liza, Dayan's daughter, is waiting for her father in his office: she is angry with him, is aware of the tensions that reign between her parents. The conversation is interrupted by Mohammed Chibane, Adel’s father, who comes to try to understand what prompted his son to consult. The conversation takes an accusing turn.
Following a death that upsets him, Dayan goes to the funeral. He finds Ariane there and confides in her his feeling of guilt. There he meets the relatives of the deceased, including his father, who, in his dismay, takes Ariane for Dayan's companion.
Dayan and his wife arrive at Esther's house together. He tries to explain why he can't forgive his infidelity to Charlotte, but Esther calls him to order: he too longs for another woman. Charlotte, jealous and exhausted by her husband's endless analyzes, cuts the session short.
Ariane arrives late because of a cat affair, an excuse Dayan questions: is it to mask his resentment for being turned away, in the last session? Leaving their meeting, Ariane has a surprising encounter.
Adel has returned. But no matter how much he learned about Dayan's skills, he was resistant to the principles of therapy. He wants to control everything, and yet the anxieties are there. Dayan gradually tries to gain his trust and find a way to reassure him.Watch Now:iTunes

Dayan receives a new patient: Adel Chibane, police officer at the BRI. Adel was on the response team that entered the Bataclan on the evening of November 13. He has since had symptoms of stress that he cannot explain. He contacts Dayan, full of reservations and suspicion.
