Synopsis / Plot
Le Refuge begins in a chic Paris apartment, where Mousse (Isabelle Carré) and Louis (Melvil Poupaud) have fallen into a spiral of drugs. Rich and beautiful, they are clearly in love, but perhaps also doomed. The next morning, Louis is dead of an overdose and Mousse is unconscious. When his mother shows up shortly after, it is to show the apartment to a prospective tenant. She had no idea of the life her son was leading. Now that he's dead, she's left with his junkie girlfriend, who is pregnant with Louis's baby. Mousse is no bourgeois matron's idea of a daughter-in-law, and before long she leaves Paris behind for a house near the sea. Against all advice, she decides to keep the baby.
